Leave them open as closing them may affect the average age of your accounts as well as you utilization.  If there are annual fees that is the only reason I can tink of closing them.  Just be sure to use them occassionally to prevent a 'closed by grantor' statement from showing up on your profile. Some leders will close for inactivity
