Sunset is kind of tough since there are so many places. There's the bridge with the classic view of Half Dome that's been done to death. There's the tunnel view, a classic Ansel Adams shot. Valley View is also a good shot, but again, this is a classic. I must say, though, that I'm partial to sunset from Glacier Point. You'll find a crowd of photographers there, however, so arrive a little early to get a good spot. It's hard to find a spot in the valley that hasn't been photographed extensively.
Sunrise has always been tougher for me. El Cap is good at either sunrise or sunset since it has both an east and west face, and there are a number of places to photograph it, either from one side or dead on.
