    Open terminal and type w and Enter.

    Or install iStat Pro widget.

    ah you mean total uptime. I'm not sure.

    I know typing the command "last" in Terminal will show somekind of log of uptime/reboot but I'm not sure how far back it goes. Not sure it shows what you want though.

    yeah that's what i mean. I want to know what my total uptime is. If i type uptime it give me this:

    19:42 up 6:36, 2 users, load averages: 0.18 0.12 0.10

    whatever that means?
