How long will this last?



Wonder how long before Bescom intervenes. That's the highest uptime @ home as far as I can remember.....

I bet if u switch off ur system regularly, Bescom wouldnt have to resort to any power cuts;)

i had 15 days @ home, before dad just restarted the comp because he wanted to use ms word... then had another 11 days before kernel 2.8.1 showed up... so right now, it's almost zero (had left out vfat)

You are a lucky bum. I had a nine hour power cut yesterday. But I have a 7-day uptime despite that.

shyam@airwolf ~ $ uptime
 00:33:41 up 12 days,  4:13,  8 users,  load average: 2.14, 2.12, 1.77


:) 9 hours is a long time, how did you manage?

I read a book, then slept the remaining hours.

Ummmm...ok. How did you manage to keep the system running?

Oh, that. That's trivial. The secret is in power management. Apple doesn't use either APM or ACPI. They have their own scheme called PMU (Power Management Unit), and it has a "sleep" mode that reduces the battery consumption to about 10% per day.

I never shut down. I just put it in sleep mode, even when travelling between cities. Switching in and out of sleep takes about a second.

You have to figure out something to do while BESCOM keeps you from doing your work.
