Uptime on iBook
Authored by: castellan on Jun 27, '01 12:02:54AM

So far, my best uptime is 30 days, 13 hours, 29 minutes (give or take). This is on a graphite 2000 iBook with 192 Megs of RAM. Only reason I had to reboot was a freeze after putting it to sleep with Classic up (not a problem I'd had before -- this was the last 'uptime' I'd checked before the incident).

I use this machine at home and at work (have an iMac w/ OS X, too, but haven't had uptimes of more than 10-11 days from new installations, etc) for programming, graphics, web design, etc.

Needless to say, for a laptop, I was pretty happy with the result!

... my idle process time goes down so drastically that I must periodically reboot to improve overall system responsiveness and stability ...

Using OmniWeb????

I had the same problem and did reboot the whole system. I discovered than that Omniweb has a hugh memory problem. After a while the VSIZE column in the top tool (Terminal command) increses slowley from around 50 MB up to 200 MB and more. The whole system was effected. When I simply quit an restart OmniWeb everything is fine again.

All the best!
