staying logged in, is it safe?

 :ScratchHead:
If I am on my home computer on my private internet provider and I live alone.  is it safe to stay logged in or should I log out each time I leave the site?

Also should add, if your computer is truly accessible to you and you only, should have no problems staying logged into websites/forums of your choosing.

Avoid public places for such and banking, etc.

I found that out the hard way.  Now public computers are just to print out things that I can't get done at home.
