Printer idling long time, switch off or leave on?

I have a MX922 and a PRO 10 attached to my iMac.     I do not print that frequent.   922 I might print a few pages in a day and leave it idle for another couple of days before printing again.    I use my PRO only when I have projects to go.    Say I might use it 2-3 consecutive days in a month and leave it idle for the rest of the month.  

 

Should I leave them switched on 24/7 even when I am not using it?  or should I turn them off, and only turn them on when I need to use it?

 

Some says the print head might clog if I do not turn it on all the time, same said if I use original Canon ink it will not clog even if I turn it off. 

 

Advise?  or official answer from Canon?
