    Do people usually keep their Nexus 7 tablet "Power On" all the time (24/7) as for mobile phones?

    Thank you for your info !

    I leave mine on all of the time. I do make it a point to restart it at least once a day though.

    Mine is always on, and always in use save for the rare moments at work where I need to actually earn my living with actual work.

    Restart daily, just as I do my phone. I feel that it runs smoother and longer when I restart.

    After jailbreaking my iphone and being able to tether, my nexus is getting used more so its almost always on. I have restarted it few times but its not a habit.

    Nice. I would still have mine up and running from first boot, but I am religious rebooter after I install any new large games/apps. Call me crazy but I still like to let things "settle" lol.

    Always on for me much like my phone. Although I forgot to charge it one night and the battery died. Of course that was my fault but no biggie...

    I'm up to 15 days. It hasn't been reset or turned off since it did the update when I first powered it on 15 days ago. Same deal with my phone too. Even my laptops just go into sleep mode and only reboot when Windows updates.

    Current uptime is 319 hours. However after around hour 150 I started noticing glitches on the home screen. I'm sure if I rebooted that they would go away, but I don't want to reboot!

    I've always had the goal of getting my Droid Charge to 1000 hours of uptime (!), but everytime I got close, I ran into some sort of problem. Like GTA III froze my phone, or I had to give the phone to my Dad to use when he broke his Droid X. Just constant things stopping me from reaching 1000 hours. I think the highest I reached on the Charge was around 700 hours.

    I'm sure the N7 can do 1000 hours and even 2000 hours (!!!), but the home screen glitches are annoying. Nothing will properly update now. For example, Plume (twitter app) used to update on the home screen but after around 150 hours or so, it has stopped.

    Also power widgets (shortcuts to WIFI and screen brightness) do not properly update. The WIFI light on the widget is always turned on, regardless if WIFI is being used or not. Stuff like that just isn't working properly anymore.

    I had a few bouts with lag as well, but I think it stopped when I closed a bunch of game programs I had running.
