Your exchange may explode from the thousands of items awaiting it but it will be fine to switch them off for a week or two.

As above. My backup drives (home) are ex NHS datacentre drives that came from 24/7/365 operation until they were decomissioned, securely wiped, and obtained by me. Now they're turned on once a month and still work fine despite having accumulated more running hours than anything at work!

And I could go to work on Monday dressed as Duffman. I very likely won't though

We had an Airconditioning failure in similar circumstances. We shut them down, but senior management we warned that we might have a problem starting them up...
Everything was fine.

Yeah it might be unlikely but if you ventilate and leave them on why take the risk? When I used to do work in waitrose we had a spate of this happening ok was a few years ago on scsi drives but it's still a possibility and something to consider before just shitting them off, triple checking backups etc there's no harm in being cautious is there
