did it before it worked for a couple of days then starts doing it again. 

Check your task scheduler to see if you have any tasks waking your PC up every few days.

Only time I turn it off is if I have to unplug it or have to do something inside. I always put it to sleep.

when i had a wireless adapter it kept waking up my computer during the night. i looked for a settings that turns off wake-up when data packets are sent over the adapter, and that seemed to do the trick

My PC is only on if I am actively using it. No point in wasting electricity. The only exception is when I need to download a large game. Even then, I can remote in and shut down once complete.

It usually depends on the requirement if my system is rendering it it might stay up for around a week, I put it to hibernate if I'm working and the background applications are functional and i face a power-cut.

otherwise it is turned off.

Completely? Only when I service it (which usually means just cleaning the dust).

Reboots every now and then for driver updates and whatnot. Downtime is sleep mode

every PC I have is "off" at night and during the day when not at home using Windows 10 hybrid shutdown, the only exception is if I have big updates (usually Steam or Windows), then I just let it run.

I turn my computer off, if I'm out of the house, asleep, or not using it for extended periods of time. I turn off my computer when I can, electricity isn't the problem, what's the point leaving it on 24/7? The only times a leave it on when I'm away are rendering, downloading, or waiting for any task to complete that will take sometime.

I only turn them off when there is a power outage or I need to upgrade hardware. When I was younger I used to shutdown every night to make it easier to go to sleep but that was because my parents refused to get air conditioning, now I live on my own in 65F air conditioned bliss.
