My standard practice is to shutdown my laptop each day. It boots up pretty fast so a full shutdown is not a problem for me. If you are intent on just letting the system sleep or hibernate then I would recommend at least a once weekly full shutdown.

Also, check windows updates manually and make sure you don't have any outstanding updates to install.

Next - open Disk Cleanup in administrator mode and clean up everything.

Last - open file explorer and go to C:\Users\ and locate your profile folder. In there, go to Temp and delete everything in the Temp folder. Some items will be "in use" so when you see that select skip and apply to all items. (disk cleanup doesn't always empty the temp folder so the manual step is needed)
