    Hi, I'm just wondering how do I check how long has my Mac been turned on? Im just curious when was the last time I restarted/shutdown my Mac cuz I always put my Mac on sleep mode when I do not use it instead of shutting down. I only restart/shutdown if I have to ie software update that requires me to restart my Mac.

    Oh also, here's another question - how do I check the duration of my wireless network connection like in Windows XP where I just open the "Wireless Network Connection Status" window?

    Thanks heaps!

    Type "uptime" in terminal. I think that’s what you're looking for.

    Is there a option for this in windows? I never turn off my computer, unless it's updating or it's frozen.
