Using the remote control to switch of TV or switching it off from the TV directly?

I am using a LCD TV. I heard from some who said that switching off the TV from the TV itself is better than using a remote control. However, by doing the former, when switching on the TV, it requires more power to switch it on so the remote control should be used. Which option will allow the TV to function... show more I am using a LCD TV. I heard from some who said that switching off the TV from the TV itself is better than using a remote control.

Which option will allow the TV to function ideally?
Or both options are fine?
