    Figured it would be a little lighter to have a thread that shows that Apple's computer CAN and DO work occasionally....

    Here's my uptime on my i7! It wants me to reboot for Safari update, but I refuse. :D :D

    I guess currently I have the longest uptime of anyone in this thread! :p

    I turn off my computer when I'm not using it.

    My Mac mini HTPC, 35d 15h 49m. The others have bootcamp so get rebooted frequently. I know its not a current gen iMac, but I had to get in there. ;)

    My record is 18 days and ~10 hours. I only shut it down or reboot when an update asks for it or if I know that I'm not going to use it for at least 24 hours. I also reboot if I've installed something big or if I need to clear my RAM

    In this case, it's definitely not a matter of length, it's all about how you use it. :D

    Myself, I reboot about three or four times a week, because I use Bootcamp. The longest it's been in OS X is maybe a week, and the vast majority of that was in sleep mode.

    I had a Netware 3.12 server that was up for over 5 years and an HP-UX machine that was up over 2 years.

    My Alu iMac tops out at about two weeks. Any time after that something crashes and I have to force reboot it. My Xp box has gone 107 days between restarts once.
