The state of home owners insurance coverage is not what it used to be. Best to read the policy and take whatever steps to avoid voiding your policy, it might be as simple as asking someone to live in your house for a couple of days, or come home a day early.

Do you have a sump pump? If so, it might not be a good idea to cut the power.
Hot climate in the summer? A sealed up house should have a minimal level of air conditioning. (Set thermostats to 85F or so, just in case) if you have central air.
Cold climate in the winter? Consider freezing pipes (water pipes, drain pipes, sewer pipes). You don't really want your house to go below 45F for long periods of time.
Best to have a trusted neighbor check your house every 3 days or so.
