I don't think the BIOS has much to gleam from a reboot in terms of benefits. But the OS can, if you have installed a lot of software or drivers and ahven't rebooted, it can cause some issues. The only real way to keep you PC running in tip top shape is to uninstall stuff you don't use, use a registry cleaner every so often (ccleaner is a good one) and defrag often.
