Spring Assist question

Just curious.......

On spring assisted knives......is it healthier for the the springs to leave the knife in the open position with the blade out so that the spring is not sitting under tension all the time.
Will the spring, or springs, become weak over time if the knife is left indefinitely in its closed position?

Thanks,

Harkblade
