    Meh, as much as I like my MBP...thats not abnormal with any good laptop or you know how to take care of it. My Sony with Vista.... well, thats just say that in the ~4-6 years that I owned it, I could count the times I rebooted it with two hands because of the OS was acting up.

    Now rebooting to install software, thats another story haha

    Fanboy much? My mom's work computer had been on for months at a time. Our desktop computer would have made it to 3 months being on, but we had a black out, so it was shut off. :(

    My mom's work computer, and our desktop computer run Windows FYI.

    Thanks for wasting energy!!! :)

    I'm sure the environment will be very happy about people not turning off devices just for the fun of competing for something this stupid ;)

    Sleeping is count as uptime but it won't consume more than a watt or two when in sleep mode.

    My Macs seem to crash more to a point requiring a restart than my Windows test box. Most common being finder locking up and not wanting to reopen. My openbsd box that serves files/etc is over a year up.

    count power consumption?

    Is there an app for counting exactly how much energy your mbp consumes on a daily basis?

    I think the longest has been between OS X updates.

    If you were to log the time that it's been shut down, I recon in 18 months for the Mac Pro ~ day
    Macbook Pro over 3 years, again, a day.

    Actually they use very little power when in Sleep mode, and it's better than turning off/turning on every day because it uses more power as everything fires up.

    We've had a work server running 24/7 for last 15 years without any hiccups, updates, viruses, etc. It's still running.

    When is the last time it was shut down? Whenever you see those 5+ year uptime servers go down a lot of the time they never come back up. :( Thermal changes do funny things to very old computers.
