I’ve left my 6700s in my shacks and the 6300 I had on for weeks. Longest was around four months left on before I wanted to reconfigure something and powered the radios down.

If you’re energy focused it is the power supply that would need to be off to save all the energy.

As for worrying about the 6300 the design incorporated the “radio server ideal” where the unit could be left on for massively extended periods of time.

The radio should be happy either way actually.
