    I've got two weeks right now. I rebooted last time because iTunes wouldn't start.

    I'm on 14 days right now. The longest I've ever been on in the 4+ months I've owned my Penryn. So far so good!

    CPU at 90 deg C+ while on 9600GT video card and system still kicking and running strong.

    My work desktop is at 4 weeks (last time I was in) since a reboot on Windows XP :eek:

    4 hours 28 minutes..lol
    I shut mine down between classes and at night so I usually only have it on for a few hours max at a time.
    I think my max is a little over 3 days on this MacBook Pro. On my one before this one I think it was 8 days.

    I'm at around the three week mark. Machine runs perfectly solid. I just started getting the "beachball" recently once in a while, but I think my HDD can be dying. On my old MacBook it was even longer, because I had no need to boot into XP (damn GMA :p) But looks like I'll be restarting soon for the iLife update.

    I've never purposely left my machines running...unless I have a reason to. (downloading a big file, etc.)

    I just don't like the idea of wasting electricity, having my computers do unnecessary work, etc.

    Rebooted yesterday since I accidentally turned off Secure Virtual Memory, and had to reboot to turn it back on. My record is somewhere around 18 days. I keep having to reboot it for some reason around that point, although it's not the system's fault. It's usually some software update.

    My record is something like 42 days, but that honestly was not because I am an uptime geek, it was because I was on vacation for three of those weeks and the machine was hibernating. I usually reboot the machine 2-3 times a week for one reason or another, and I shut it down when I don't expect to use it for more than a day or if I am traveling a long distance.
