    Absolutely. Just make sure the cooling openings on the case aren't blocked.

    I haven't shut down my iBook in 4 days, Only goes into sleep mode now and then...
    I allways make sure that the bottom is on a real flat surface, because the bottom surface of your ibook is a little egg-shaped and that way it gives off it's heat to the surroundings...

    I never shut mine off, I do shut the cover, and it does go to sleep though. I have had mine on, with a couple of reboots, for at least a month solid, now. It does get a little warm at times, but I don't find it very productive to have a "laptop" on my "lap" so, it stays on my coffee table, where I'm sure it gets the best ventiliation other than actually hovering in mid air with a cool arctic breeze....

    Well, you get the idea

    You'll never notice it if you don't know it. It's very little. I read it in the iBook's manual somewhere.
