Is it safe for PS3 slim to be working through the whole night?

I have the first PS3 slim that came out and plan on subscribing to PS+ today.
Because I need the internet through the day I was wondering would it be safe for the console to be turned on through the whole night downloading games?
Can there be overheating issues?

I think it is pretty safe if you keep it in a cool, open space. I have an old fat PS3 and i've done that before and it has been fine. Even though every console is different.

I regularly leave both the slim and the fat boy I have here on overnight to download titles due to my slow Internet. The console isn't using all its power so it should be cool enough to leave unattended for extended periods providing it isn't in a very hot atmosphere..
