    What's your uptime on your PC/mac?

    I've seen that some of you leave it on 24/7, so you guys should have some amazing uptimes!

    Mine is at 67 hours, 26 minutes at the moment :)

    err... does hibernation count?
    The Network Connect status showed me once that I've had my laptop on for about 13days xx hours on/off - I did it with the use of putting the system into hibernation... lol :p

    Noob question! How does one check his PC uptime? Is there any way to see the longest (or all) uptime ever of my pc?

    Type the following command:
    Systeminfo | Find "Up Time"

    I just googled "check windows uptime"


    Which proves my number i posted was wrong. Mine shows 65 Days, 13 Hours. I wonder if it has something to do with two CPUs? every second being counted as two?

    My Linux box is at 73 days and counting... (would be more without power outages, thankfully I have a UPS now as of last boot)

    As far as my desktop, not so great, I used to be an uptime whore, but I don't really care about it all that much anymore, and with my dual-booting between Windows XP and OS X (Yay Hackintosh) it doesn't tend to be that great anyway. Currently at just a day and a half. (Spend most of my time in OS X, but was in Windows gaming Friday night.)

    Back when I was in a purely Windows world, my record was about 70 days until I got bored and rebooted. :p

    I've been using hibernate to reduce my power usage. I have not rebooted since January when a fuse blew (my apartment is that old) I barely saved it from rebooting when windows update was trying to force me to reboot with a 5 minute timer every 20 minutes but I stopped it by killing the service.

    This computer is a 2.8ghz pentium D running XP MC SP2 with one 250GB and one 320GB drive and only used to watch movies and browse the web, as it's hooked up to a 42" plasma.

    I've thought about running linux on it as nothing that I do is platform specific, but it's stability doesn't motivate me to change anything.

    The systeminfo command will not work on XP Home.

    On XP Home enter this in a command prompt: net statistics workstation

    Look at the line by the top that says something similar to Statistics since 5/4/2002 9:07 AM.

    My old ass desktop's own record is 42 days. Other than being a host for the network's printer and the occasional word processing, its pretty much idle all the time.
