    That means that someone isn't patching...
    I never get past a month.

    When I'm not using my PC, I'll put it in standby. So, technically, it's not shutdown, but it's not "on" either. Would that be considered "uptime"?

    Any Windows will happily run for a year or so.. As long as you don't try to run any other software on it..

    Can anyone explain why you would want your machine "up" for that length of time?

    Do you pay the electricity bills?

    Do you have the faintest idea of health and safety?

    Do you care about your environment and the legacy you are creating?

    Or is it just the usual pathetic grade school "bragging rights"?

    I await intelligent responses with interest

    Hi

    Well at present my system is up for 1 day 7 hrs (not of anyones interest)

    But i want to point out an interesting thing. This up time is accumulated over a period of 3 days which means that even though the system shows an uptime of more than a day it might actually not be.

    And why ......... say thanks to hibernation. Technically the uptime is the time between two reboots. Atleast win xp sees it that way.

    .... computers come to the rescue .... ah technology at last has some use.

    My system has been up this long because i dont pay electricity bills my school does. It is my personal computer in my compsci class.

    Not sure why this would affect health though (Can you please give me some insight Nihil)

    And honestly no I don't care abouth the environment. Also I doubt me turning my computer off is gonna save the invironment anyways.
