If you are using the OSPi for irrigation scheduling it would need to be running all the time in order for the scheduling program to work unless you write your own program to activate the valves when the OSPi wakes up.

As far as power usage, I have seen an estimate on the Raspberry Pi web site of a yearly cost of something like $3.50 for running the Pi 24/7.
