Default Testing Voltage

Just a quick question - when I test voltage on my amp using the test points (using fluke multimeter) the amp has to be plugged in and ON? Are the tubes also in their sockets?

Every thing is in and on but no signal and speakers/load must be connected.

Great, so speakers connected. OK if I leave my input disconnected?

Aside from the obvious (be very very careful), what are the recommended safety precautions one should take prior to measuring voltages (given the label that otherwise warns of high voltages inside the case)?
