"Un" tuning?

Dumb question here ... I've heard various opinions as to whether an instrument's strings should be slackened when the instrument is put away, or left in tune -- even if it will be a while before you pick it up again.

Thoughts? I'd imagine it would be a good idea if there is a major change in temperature or humidity?
