    The only possibility of a problem that I could think of would be it possibly falling over to flat and that might damage the hard drive.

    The only thing I can think of is airflow. As trh noted, don't block any ventilation holes. But also keep in mind the design of the unit assumed horizontal configuration as far as air flow and internal cooling. Keep an eye on it for a few days and make sure it doesn't start running hot.
