I know this can be done in Win95 and 98 by going to system info, but in Win2k this isn't so. In WinXP it can be seen by going to a command prompt and typing "system info"

How can I tell how long a computer with Windows 2000 Pro has been turned on?

It's all good ^_^

Yeah, uptime. It's how long your computer has been turned on, or into windows anyway

I found it once but don't remember where it is. Now I just use SiSoft Sandra and its under windows information.

like... ummmmm.... I don't think you got what I said.

open up a DOS window, and type:


It's actually the name of the utility. i kid you not. That will give you what you want. Get it?

Ah, I thought you were asking what it meant. It was so simple, it was difficult.

Thanks a bunch

I opened up a command prompt window on my 2000 computer and typed "uptime" and got:

'uptime' is not recognized as an
operable program or batch file.

It's all good ^_^

I don't have this on any of my systems either. Is this something that needs to be manually pulled off the CD?

i downloaded a small program called, strangely enough "uptime.exe" sits in your task tray, and u can have it somewhere on your desktop. It also can keep track if you hibernate your system too.

Open up task manager (ctrl-alt-del -> task manager or right-click task bar -> task manager). The cpu time of system idle process.

Hi from any of the Windows server 2003 system - go to command prompt and type the below command.

systeminof /S System (where system is remote windows 2000 server FQDN name)

you will get the system information of the remote windows 2000 server.

Sorry type mistake

systeminfo /S System (where system is remote windows 2000 server FQDN name)

Instead of that you may use
"net statistics server" command on the Windows 2000 box.
