But the motherboard died.
600 days! That is almost 2 years!

I have to admit that I have already uptime ~14 days on my Windows 7 machine and I haven't noticed any negative impact of it - I mean no slow downs, no lags, everything works very stable and smooth so far. I put my computer every night in sleep or hibernate mode - thats it.
I remember also that with Windows XP after ~3days of uptime my system noticeably slows down, with Windows 7 it's gone.
Good job MS.

Well I switch off every night and turn on again each morning, being on a meter for electric I'm not paying for something to be on while I'm in bed, plus there's the fire hazard as well to consider.

I used to leave my PC on 24x7. But these days, these boxes just suck so much power when they run that I shut them off. And with newer hardware and SSD drives, I'm booted and ready to go from a power on in about 30 seconds.

Ya I hear that. I have older machines so power consumption is not too much of a problem.

The reason I leave them both on 24x7 is because I constantly access files on one of the machines when I'm using the other. And on the slower of the two, the boot time is rather long.

System stuttering and lagging after long uptime
After my computer is left on for a period of time (anywhere from a few hours to a day or two), it starts lagging and stuttering. A "spike of lag" occurs every few seconds, temporarily freezing the system (typing/mouse movement is affected, sound isn't). It can't be a RAM issue because I have 16GB...

I downloaded this Computer UpTime gadget from Windows Live Gallery. But it is plain & doesn't even have a Name Title above it :( Can any of our resident gadget experts modify it with a Name, color options, etc. :huh: Or any other options that come to mind. Win7 logo, or orb ?
