Question here about switches

Hi Sometime in the future I will be updating my panel with MGL equipment. My question is about powering everything up. Should I have all radios and such on one switch or should you have multiple switches, say one for radios , one for transponder, one for the glass panel, etc. What is the common way to do this.
