Just checked my Steam and saw that it had downloaded 4.6 GB of data while I was sleeping.
What the hell was that? O_O

Why do you leave your computer connected to internet all the night unattended?

Lots of people do.
A lot of people leave their PCs on all day and all night. I shut mine down, but it's always connected to the internet.

You can put it to sleep (ACPI enabled or SSD). It takes then 2 seconds to wake up instead of waiting for the boot and loading.

If you have SSD you'll get to desktop from power off state in 7 seconds or less with good config and Win7 plus loads of saved power.

Because that's the best way to get the most out of Steam. My games are always updated and ready to play, unlike those that turn off Steam or their rigs. Besides I do my maintenance at night. Why would one disconnect their internet at all?

As far as power consumption concerns, turning the PC off is the worst thing one can do.

About Sleep:
"All of the open programs, documents and files are preserved in system RAM and the rest of the system is powered off. Because only memory is powered, Sleep consumes a very small amount of power—typically less than 1W on a mobile PC and typically less than 3W on a desktop PC. The primary benefit of Sleep is that resume is very fast—most systems resume from sleep in less than 2 seconds."

I hibernate my PC overnight.
Zero power consumption and it stops/resumes in a few seconds, with the same state as before.

Millions of people do this for millions of different reasons...

I leave my PC on overnight for several reasons, such as to run two Folding@Home clients, Steam and PC maintenance.
