Food storage -- Help settle a disagreement!

My boyfriend and I have an ongoing disagreement about storage of leftovers. I've always been taught that you should let the food cool till it is near or at room temperature before closing the container and setting in the refrigerator. I was told by my mother (who is never wrong :) ) that putting warm food in the refrigerator hastens spoiling.

Whatcha think? We have a supper of the other's choice riding on this.

Blue skies,
Catherine
