Maximum number of days to keep system hibernated under regular use
I have been trying this. Using the system daily and 8 logons as an Admin and also as Guest. (So it makes 10 logons). The usage tends to vary from 10 min to 2 hours depending at each logons.
I could manage 10 days without restarting. Ofcourse during this period there were no critical Windows update. After 10 days the explorer tends to get disturbed/malfunctions. Trying to close the explorer thru Task manager or a self written batch does not work. I would be compelled to restart , during such times the logoff and shutdown seemed to hang and I would go for the HARD Switch off/on.
Theoretically such an event should not arise , EXPLORER seems to be the one that gets affected. In may case clicking on the folder tab in the systray , while the network discovery is on (I have posted a separate thread) seems to put it off. Any clues on this?

I don't think there's a "maximum number of days" that a computer can be kept in a state of hibernation. Although from what I've read, a general rule of thumb seems to be based on whether the user is more concerned about saving energy or reducing boot time.

As far as why Explorer seems to hang every so often, it might be a case of something called "Single Event Upset". A power glitch, for example, could cause a logic state to change from a 1 to a 0 or vice versa. In software, the computer can get caught in an infinite loop. A simple shutdown or reboot (power-cycling the equipment) can cure many such problems by forcing the computer to restart from a known good state.
