The primary goal is to remove the method of access for any hackers so they don't have unlimited time to work on breaking your defenses.
However, depending on whether its a work or home computer and whether it contains personal or confidential information I can think of other reasons why it might be better to physically shut the machine down rather than just disabling or shutting down the network / Internet connection.
