i leave my computer on 24/7, as long as its temps are down, the cache is low, and my processor is running good, there is no need to reboot.

plus i have a programm that makes the computer do all ythe things rebooting makes it do without even closing any programs

I leave it on for like 10 hours or something. Sometimes I leave it on all night, but I've never left it on for more than two whole days.

Paradox: What is that program's name?

I shut my desktop off before I go out (Example: School) and before I go to bed.

Laptop stays in sleep or hibernate unless some noob turns it off

Mine stays on all the time. Mainly because I fold(distributed computing).
