    I only have them on when someone is in the room with them or not going to be long out of the room.
    I used to make OH stay in the house while I pop to the shop so that I can come home to the lights on because he's home :)

    I would say no. They will "probably" be fine but I wouldn't risk it.

    No, I never leave them on, when I'm out or at night. I am really paranoid about electrical fires though aswell so that doesnt help. :thumbup:

    I turn mine off if we go out or when we go to bed but that's to save the electric bill rather than any safety issues!

    We turn ours off if we're going out and at night. They only get switched on if it's dark or dull enough to see them.

    We have ours on a timer so they go on at half past four then turn off at half past 11. They stay on whether we are in or out then x
