Leave my passport essential portable hard drive always plugged in?

I have an SSD as my main drive on my laptop which i use mainly for my OS and programs and i use a my passport external drive to store all my personal data. Is it okay if i leave my passport always plugged in to the usb? will that cause more wear on the device in the long run? I turn off my laptop when im not using it so its not on 24/7

no problem dude…

I don’t do this myself but lots of people do this with no problem

the drive will hibernate whenever not in use and it will turn off when you turn off the computer.

You might wanna check if your computer still sends power through usb even when off … then you will need to adjust the power settings at your convenience.
