I suspect "downtime" is being used as the opposite of "uptime" -- as in, the last time your computer was off or rebooted.

I'm still looking for the "had to move" option. that's the reason i shut my work machine down today, 556 ... it's also the reason why i shut it down 556 days ago (i think it had over 2 years of uptime before that)

    A couple moves ago, it occured to me that my server was plugged into a UPS that could power it for longer than the time it took to drive from my old apartment to the new one and briefly considered transporting them as a unit so that the box could stay up the whole time. But then I decided that was overly silly and just shut it down like a reasonable person since I didn't know how well the hard drives would respond to bumps in the road.
