    i was wondering if it is alright to just put my TiBook to sleep for the whole time i'm not using it. usually i just put it in sleep when i go to bed and then use it in the morning, put it in sleep, stick it in my bag and go to college, and then use it there. is it alright to have it in sleep while i'm transporting it?
    using sleep mode is alot faster than shutting down and starting up all the time, so i'm hoping that it's alright to do it all the time.

    one quick side question- is there a program or something in OS X that will tell me how much up-time my TiBook has had? thanks!

    It is ok to keep your Ti sleeping all the time. You should be able to have it sleep for a week without the battery dying - I'mm not sure how long exactly, but I'm guessing you won't sleep it for a week, you'll probably want to use it now and then. :)

    You can open the Terminal (Applications>Utilities) and type "uptime". That will tell you to the minute how long it's been since you shut down.

    thanks Beej. i hope it's not possible to mess stuff up from Terminal. i'll try not to mess around with it too much. and do you know any other things that terminal can tell you about?
