Just want quick assurance. Can leaving an N64 on overnight cause any harm or damage to the console? (I'm fairly new to older consoles.)

Just want quick assurance, I recently purchased an N64. After gaming, I forgot to turn the console off and left it on overnight while sleeping. Can this cause any harm or damage to the console? I surely won't make this mistake again lol. Cheers! (I'm fairly new to older consoles.)

i have no evidence one way or the other, but we used to leave the NES on for a night. But this was 30 years ago. I guess if it still works you're good. My only concern would be if it overheated.

I can't see how leaving it on can.
Like, it wouldn't overheat whilst your playing it so why would it whilst you was sleeping.
Just like leaving your TV on I guess

Momma always taught me to never leave big time electronics on over night.๐Ÿ˜…
You want the life of your console to be extended as long as possible.
Plus, anything could happen, like , an electrical short.
