Subject: [gentoo-user] system uptime
Date: Sun, 30 Aug 2015 04:05:00
1 How long do desktop users typically leave their systems between reboots ?
2 How long between power off/on's ?
4 I've long been in the habit of switching everything off while I sleep,
5 then restarting after I've woken & got going again myself.
6 However recently, I've run into delays getting my router
7 (only 1 device attached) to shake hands successfully with my ISP's server,
8 which have been requiring several power off/on's before it works.
9 As a result, I've started rebooting only after my weekly system update
10 -- it means I get to use the new versions of everything --
11 & not powering off at all ; the monitor + Xscreensaver are off
12 whenever I'm away from the machine for >= 1 hr (approx).
14 Are there any pro's/con's I sb aware of ?
