    Spare parts is reading me at 167 hours since last boot, and that sounds about right.

    I know, I should reboot every couple days, but my setup seems flawless now and I am not having any issues.

    So how long have you guys gone without a reboot by choice?

    i personally reboot every other day. I like to give the device that little couple of seconds of rest.

    longest i went was about a week, then something froze.

    I've gone as long at 434 hours before having to reset because of a screw up. I like seeing how long the phone can go. :p

    I'm at 142 right now though.

    Based on what?

    I rarely reboot. Only if there are issues. Probably ~1/month or less.

    I'm at 72 hours right now. And that was because I was ****in with some kernels. Otherwise, I only reboot if something happens that warrants it. If it's running ok, i'll let it go weeks.

    I went around 900 hours once. I'd say on average I probably restart once a week though.

    I haven't rebooted this thing more than four times since I got it the first of the year, two of those times were for updates.

    It runs Linux

    I do it when I feel it getting sluggish. Web browser slowing down, those type of things.

    The great think about the Droid as opposed to something like a Blackberry Storm is it doesn't suck the life out of your battery and take a half a day to reset. :)
