  • Its how long its been since your machine has been restarted/shutdown.  You probably keep your laptop in sleep or hibernation mode and the CPU Uptime keeps ticking away while its in sleep mode and thus why it states 1 day 8 hours.  Reboot your laptop and you'll see that uptime reset.

  • this happens becasue of the new Shutdown/Boot mechanism from Windows 8 which is basically a logoff + Hibernation.

    And with hibernation the counter is not reseted.
