I just bought an onkyo home theater system and i was wondering if it is safe to leave the reciever on all the time. is this going to hurt the life of it?

Should be alright if you get a battery powered surg protector-with a garenty second you can get storm ensurance. Last there is ALWAYs a rish in leaving it on. I dont personaly

It's probably safer from surges when it's on as opposed to off and plugged in.

Does it have a standby mode or a hard power switch?

I recommend a line conditioner for surge protection and quality if you have crappy electrical.

We have the same kind of reciever at work that has been left on the vast majority of the last two years and not a hiccup.

Why do you say this?

If you live in a humid climate, it's often better to leave things on. You don't get moisture condensing on the components so much, that way.
