I think it was about 39 hours. It was work, specifically working on a multi-million dollar value proposal. It was grueling. I will never work like that again. I never turned my computer off and had the it hooked up to my stereo speaker so when I received mail it was loud and would wake me from my catnaps. never again.

I work from home most of the time when working on proposals. So I used my desktop which is "always on". Minimal draw on electric bill. Breaks for food, sort of, walk downstairs grab something quick. Coffee pot in my home office so no leaving for that. Restroom attached to my home office as well, no break for that. Reason for the extra loud speaker? To wake me from naps at my desk to do more reading and editing. Wouldn't be the first proposal that worked that way. I have worked 27 hours straight before. But 39 was the record.
