    longest I've had mine on is 37 hours, but I've been told you can have it on for weeks. Personally I don't like to leave it on for longer than a day because I don't want to risk damaging my pc.

    its worse to turn it on and off a lot than it is to keep it on for long periods of time

    Depends on your system, so I wouldnt say that is always true.



    Also, heh, that reminds me of my friend steve, his record for being on AIM was 28 Days, on his Mac Lap Top, ROFL.

    No but serious, dont worry about keeping it on 24/7 they were made to do that.

    If I leave me PC on for a long time it consupts alot of ram so I need to reboot before playing a game. Longest I left it on was 8 days cuz it had 2 restart when putting in software
