It's meant to be left on all the time. I never gave it any further thought. After 6-7 years it has not harmed the motor one bit, using a Walker Audio PMC.

Thanks for the response. I do travel 50% of the time. So, wouldn't "switching off" the motor be a better option for me? That said, apart from the tube pre and power amps, I do leave the other components on standby mode all the time. For the Nottingham, plugging and unplugging the power cords can be a bit of a hassle and quite a task considering the tight fit of the Oyaide plug!
