SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1

I just moved my database over to SQL Server 2012 last month from a shared SQL 2005 box maintained by someone else.  It took awhile but now everything is up and running smoothly.  Should I now apply SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 or leave things alone?

I'm not real familiar with maintaining a SQL Server, so I'm reluctant to install a major update with things running well.  Only thing I've noticed is that it tends to roll forward a bunch of transactions if I reboot in the evening, so I'm guessing it is slow to clear the buffer cache.  Not sure this is a problem though.  Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks!

the first service pack is normally good to be applied quickly.
later service packs only when you really have the need to respectively when you have some spare time.

usually.
check the service pack release notes (what has been fixed...) to see if it really will help/stabilize
