"Burn In" Question

I am burning in a new set of interconnects.My preferred way to do this is to hook them up to a stereo VCR and run TV audio through them all day. My question is, does the integrated amp that I have the cables running to have to be powered up? I would prefer not to leave my more expensive pieces on gathering heat all day. Thanks for the help.

Bob - i have seen comments on this topic on other threads, but never a clear POV. Should tube preamps be left on? Tube amps? I currently switch off my tube amos, but tend t leave the preamp on.
