5-6 hours a day maybe. I turn it off whenever I'm not using it. Even if I will only be gone for an hour in between working, I will still knock it off or at least put it to sleep if I have a load of documents open that I will be still using. I don't see the point in wasting energy. Anyways sure it half defeats the purpose of having an ssd if you never get to see how fast it boots up  :).

Most of the day. I would run it less if I had an SSD but my current hard drive takes so long to boot up with.

I need to restart my PC due to automatic updates. So yeah, I'm counting on it to run longer than my longest uptime. I've been running 2/7 for a few months before I reformat my computer.

I turn mine on in the morning when I wake up, and off when I get to bed. However when I go back to school, I will turn it on after I get home and off when I go to bed.

In the summer time, I have it on from when I wake up (anywhere from 11am-2pm) to when I go to bed (anywhere from 2am-4am) so I guess approx. 15 hours a day
