    I haven't turned it off in a week. At night I just close the screen, it goes asleep and I charge it. Is it OK for my macbook to be on this long?

    Mine turns off when either 1) battery dies or 2) updates. When moving place to place, I just close it and open it at my destination. They are durable like that.

    I haven't actually shutdown an apple laptop in years...
    only time i restart it is really for software/system updates...
    and now that I'm running leopard beta, when the system crashes...

    other than that, i just close the lid...

    So the leopard beta is really unstable? I wanted to try it, but if its gonna crash all the time, I'll just wait until its fixed up.

    I'd wait...it has some pretty sweet ass features which make me anxious for the retail release...but it gets buggy at times...i can do the same thing a dozen times, but on the 13th attempt, sometime will crash...it's random...

    when i go to work i miss the leopard features sometimes....
