Is there a disadvantage of Desktop Computer being turned on since many weeks?

I am not concerned with speed of processes since my desktop computer has 14 GB of Ram and a 1.5 Terabyte Hard Disk. I really don't know much about the limits of hardware so I wanted to know that since my Desktop Computer has been turned on since a couple of weeks, would there be any potential damage to the machine that I need to be concerned about? I do not need suggestions to hibernate the computer I only want to know potential problems of continuous use that I need to be concerned about. Thank you in advance.

Other than dust collection with the fans, there's no problem. I keep mine on constantly, but I do turn the monitor off.

potential problems could be the fans suck a lot of dust into case that needs to be cleaned out. The failure of a fan which could cause heat issues.
