win 98 SE "standby mode"

I have only just started to use "standby" instead of shutting down completely during the day. It certainly makes a difference when booting up, it is so quick. Does this consume as much power as when it is turned on, and is the fan still running. Will it do any damage when it is in the "standby" mode for hours on end
Thanks

i checked with Evesham about leaving it on and they said it will do no harm, since then this PC has been on 24/7 for the last two years..
