keep it under pressure or leave it empty

what is the best way for a compressor
leave it under pressure or leave it empty
keeping it under pressure might make for more condensate as there is more air which means more water and also more pressure on the seals
but the seals could be designed by a clever engineer and do better when used as designed
leave it empty and with drain plug open might let condensate build up inside as it might be a little cooler but then the seals are exposed to air and might dry out and shrink
or forget about it and just make some stuff which is what i usually do with this sort of dilemma

I just shut it off. Starts out under pressure, but eventually is is not Fittings leak, tools, leak, hoses leak. Few systems go more than 12 hours.

i do due to noise but i unplug the air delivery too and the tank keeps pressure for a long time
days or maybe weeks but maybe i should open it up and leave it with no pressure
will check what the manufacturer says
