Mark V Standby Mode... Damage?

Hey guys, help me out with an argument. Does leaving an amp (in this case a Mark V 35) in standby mode overnight hurt anything? Or is it simply a matter of 15 hours of tube wear?

Thanks !

I mean.. the only time I use standby mode is if I know I'll be playing the amp again usually within about 30 mins or so.. otherwise I would just turn the whole amp off. I don't think it will hurt anything though to keep it on for extended hours but at the same time its not something I would ever do anyway.

There really isnt a definitive answer on that I dont think.

Ive left all kind of Boogie amps in standby for more than 24 hrs in the past and some of them still have power tubes that are at least five years old.

I wouldnt worry about it too much but I also wouldnt just leave my amp on all the time either.
