It will run down your battery, yes, but you would notice that. It's OK in the sense that you could uninstall any app you don't want keeping your phone awake and it wont harm your phone anymore. Also it has very legitimate uses for say a music app or nitghtime alarm clock type app.

All in all it's mostly a harmless permission and (while not impossible) I can't imagine it ever being used to harm someone's phone.
