When I switched to Mac, seven months ago (!), one ting that really amazed me was how infrequently I had to restart my PB. Coming from the PC world, where a forced restart is practically a daily occurrence, this was very exciting. When I realized that you could get a precise reading of just how long you've gone without a restart-- via the "uptime" command-- I was thrilled. (This is a great way to astound your PC friends and make them jealous of MAC-- try it!)
That being said, I'd like to try and get ppl to post their "uptimes": either current or all-time best. Why? No specific reason, other than to marvel at the stability of OSX.
Mine: (current) 6 days, 22 mins.

Does the "uptime" include when you put your Mac to sleep? Meaning, does the uptime counter get reset when you put and resume your Mac from sleep mode?

No, it does not. It counts the time from power up to power down. YOu have to actually do a SHUT DOWN or RESTART for the counter to restart.
