Do u idle the stove during the day or actually shut it off and re-light it at night?

In the spring (May)I would shut my stove off in the morning and relight it at 10:30 or so in the evening. I got good at making an idle fire in about 15 min. Anyone can make a ripping fire in 15 min but an idle fire takes a bit more of a gentle touch.
