    Hello,I'm fairly new to laptops(used desktops only) I was wondering if it's normal for a mbp to be running for maybe 6-8 hours straight. It won't be running any high end programs,just typical chatting and web browsing.

    I hardly ever turn my machine off. It'll be fine.

    All current Macs have a sleep feature. No need to turn them off, my Macs get restarted every month or so if there is a system update or if they frell up, but the rest of the time they just sleep if I don't need to use them.
