Is it better to turn off your computer(laptop) or sleep?

Everyday, first thing I do is turn on my laptop (connected to AC) in the morning. I leave it on the whole day and come back, use it, at random intervals as needed. I use it pretty regularly. At the end of the day, I would always shut off my computer. Now, I've heard from some people that it's better to put your computer to sleep. Is that true?
Also, I keep my battery in the laptop while I use it. I never disconnect my laptop from the AC, and I've heard its bad to keep the battery in the laptop, too.
I don't know if this matters, but I have a Dell Inspiron 6400, Windows Vista.
