Does anyone remember the terminal command for uptime? I've never done it, so i don't even know what it could be, but I now it exists. Forgive my newbishness,
Nah, if he had told you to leave out the spaces, then you could accuse him of making you look like an idiot.Capt Underpants said:Thanks....for making me look like an idiot. You could've PM'd it to me !
Not a bad uptime... 34 days...
How do you know when to do an update?? Does the ibook automaticly prompt you for an update?abc123 said:i turn my powerbook off only when i do an update that requires a restart. aside from that i think i've turned it off once since april to give it a bit of a wipe down.
What game was it?ricebag said:On my old iBook - 500 mhz dual usb - I was playing a game on a SNES emulator and wasn't sure if the saving functions worked and didn't want to lose my hard-won progress, so I left it on for months with the game running the whole time.
an ibook/powerbook is a little different, that article says that it is the "green" thing to do because while a computer is idle it uses heaps of power. i don't know exactly how long they can last but i've left my powerbook asleep for days, not connected to a power supply and the battery has hardly drained at all.Jsmit said:
