    30 days for my Work desktop at the office and 21 days at the home desktop. I rebooted due to patches why the 30/21 runtimes.

    I keep saying no to the recent updates though.

    Rock solid :)

    I remember getting 30-40 days on my PowerMac G4 but iTunes would always fark up over NFS and need a reboot.

    I did 36 days on my old PowerMac G4 MDD a few years back. With my mac pro its usually around 5-15 days.

    Forgive my naiveté, but does "uptime" just refer to the amount of time your machine has been running without a restart? Is it common with Mac Pros to keep them running for weeks at a time? Is there no benefit in the occasional restart, or is it just cool to see how long you can go?

    With a <30-second boot time, it wouldn't seem that bad to restart every once in a while, right?

    Yep, uptime is the time that has passed since the last time you booted your machine.


    Sorry mate, but these threads serve no real purpose and often end up as spam fests.
