With my old Sony I left it on and never had a problem.  Now that I've switched to Nikon (the lense is a Sigma 70-200 OS) and have it built into the lens I turn it off.  As a previous poster mentioned, it isn't always a problem but sometimes when quickly swinging the lens it causes problems.  Beyond that, for the type of shooting I'm doing it generally doesn't do any good as I'm not waiting long enough for the stabilization to kick in.

It's interesting, with all of the which stabilization approach is better I don't remember ever seeing an argument for in body based on the speed that it engages.
