Your computer uptime?

What's your current uptime with your home computer? I don't like turning mine off unless I have to, as it's nice waking up / sitting down at the desk / whatever and having everything ready to go.

[email protected]:~$ uptime
23:36:07 up 8 days, 9:26, 9 users, load average: 0.18, 0.25, 0.35

Definitely has been up longer in the past, unsure why I rebooted 8 days ago.

13 Days on my windows machine, 92 days on a linux machine. I had to restart 13 days ago on my windows machine for updates, before that I had 40 days.

My work computer is automatically shut down at nights due to the energy crisis in Korea (it's actually a major issue. Many government buildings don't even allow air conditioning on certain days and doesn't allow the settings to be lower than 26 degrees Celsius.). Current uptime? About 4 hours (since I got into work this morning). The boot time isn't that bad (like 45 seconds?) even though this is ancient hardware. AMD Athlon X2 with 2GB of RAM running Windows 7 64-bit. I can just go on reddit on my phone while I wait for it to boot up, and hell I'm getting paid for it so why not?

I have had a few linux system go past 400 days uptime. Normally a kernel update or hardware maintenance is the only reason for a reboot for linux. Windows on the other hand depending on the version seems if you don't reboot after a while it just stops working LOL. Got to love Microsoft.

Only 03:11:37. Turned it on when I got home from work. No need to leave it on since it boots up like 10 seconds thanks to two Intel SSDs in RAID0.

I can't even go 2 weeks without formatting it. I bet my iPad has some serious uptime though...

Home one probably something like 14d, had to install custom gpu cooler to silence that fermi :)

Best record is 90 days, then I plugged USB-device and got bluescreen, damn windows

My phone was on 16 days of battery-only uptime and only discharged to 50%~...

I tend to leave things on even during the few hours I actually sleep.  But the computers, blah, reboots are part of life it seems with them.


06:04:57 up 93 days, 22:57,  1 user,  Small linux box, the most power hungry ones are shutdown daily. We need to be ecofriendly :)

Why would you leave your home computer up for so long? Seems like waste of energy to me.
Shutting down everything and reopening everything is a terrible process, I hate it. :mellow: 

When I come home I like to just pop the monitors open and good to go, same deal in the mornings.

plus what if I need remote access to my computer?



Oh my! Didn't realize until I saw this thread.  Which explains why my Electric bill skyrocketed. Debunked!

I can imagine. Regarding remote access sure I agree but it's not like you keep it on for days just for this very purpose. You don't access your computer at 1AM. Do you?
