From my personal experience (with a Sony Vaio notebook which I still use), I (the end user) should be able to leave my laptop on for as long as I like and should not experience any hardware failure whatsoever. I have had my computers "on" (running with moderate use, idling, put to sleep mode then reawakened... basically it was never shut down or restarted) for weeks and months! Basically I have my full confidence for Sony brands; notebooks, cameras, TVs, what have you.
As for Lenovo, I think I should be able to treat it the same as how I treat my Sony. This is my first Lenovo purchase, which is a G560 as well, so only time will tell what it can handle. I have friends who have mainly Thinkpads and as far as I can tell, those are very durable. But I am fairly certain that engineering teams are of different levels skill and seniority wise when designing these two very different laptops for different end users. Hence, why I have already experienced issues with my G560 right out of the box. But hopefully they will all get resolved (this forum seems like a more helpful place than tech support fortunately or sadly depending on how you see it).
