you should never leave the clutch in because when you do that, the plates aren't touching, but they are still spinning which could cause them to generate more heat and warp because they are not designed to spin for long without being pressed together.
That makes a lot of sense too. The plates certainly CAN be touching, they just don't have pressure on them. The fricion disk can move freely between touching the flywheel or touching the pressure plate, there is nothing to keep it in the middle where it touches neither.
