This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.
Forever (provided it's not overheating or being shaken/thrown around while it's running).
All components have both a service life & a cycle life (how long they can run continuously & how many times you can start/stop them): No matter what you do you'll exhaust one before the other, so just use the machine however it best suits your needs.
You can keep it on for 6-7 days straight. Months even. Unless your wife gets angry that you've not showered or bathed for 6-7 days straight and haven't said anything more than a guttural growl when she tells you she wants to go out to dinner or do something requiring your attention. That might be detrimental to your health.
