    /Applications/Utilities/Conlsole

    Look at the windowserver.log

    This shows the time I shut down and the next timeI booted up. These are consecutive entries.

    That won't show you when you last shut down. That will only show you your uptime (the time your machine has been on).

    I typed last into Terminal, and I have a question:

    What's with all the reboots when I hardly ever reboot my system?

    Before I explain this, I'll let you think about it for a while.

    The difference is that when I shut down the MBP and go on a world cruise for 3 months, then come back and start the MBP, the ' uptime' results will not take into account the time I spent on my world cruise

    I believe the question was specific on " last shutdown " and not on " last reboot "
