  uptime counts time spend in suspend

Status in “procps” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: procps

  According to man, amongst other things uptime shows "how long the
  system has been running". This is not true in the case of suspending
  the computer, as uptime counts the time spend in suspend as uptime
  time. In this way one can turn on a computer, put it to sleep for a
  week and then go back from suspend and uptime will show them the whole
  7 days of uptime.
