Do you, and if so how often do you reboot your production-level systems?
So far, I've rebooted my systems every night. However I reduced this to a weekly reboot 2 weeks ago and had no problems so far. I'd be interested in your experiences - thank you.
Whenever the system starts to get slow or I hear a lot of disk activity.
my macbook reboots when new updates get's installed and a reboot is forced.
My new PC is currently up for two weeks. On a clean windows i don't see a point for reboots.
If it cannot run a week without rebooting then you have a problem.
My VM will be shut down on Friday (sometimes I even only suspend and resume on Monday), simply because I don't need it to waste CPU and RAM during the weekend. There is no other reason for me to reboot the VM (XP professional on VMWare, rock solid). The host system where this VM is running on is rebooted only once or twice a year, usually because of a concrete reason, the last time I rebooted it was a month ago because of hardware problems with the network adapter.
