My miner restarts once a day. I only have access to it once a month.

After 8 months I had to take down a LTC rig today for cleaning out the fans - amazing how useful a leafblower is - the hell with compressed air  Grin  It did have 2 pauses in mining (switching from reaper to CGMiner and then again switching pools) but the machine didn't actually restart - Win 7 x64 SP1

I never need to restart, unlike there is a power cut in my area. I am running Linux.

To keep safe I would probably say at least once a week. The couple of minutes of lost mining is nothing for being on the safe side and restarting.

But each restart does result in a thermal contraction/expansion cycle for the cards unless you're fast about it.

CPU mining on a desktop should be fine even with a stock fan.

I would not do any kind of mining with a laptop.  I just bought a brand new 17" I7 and went with a GTX 770 since I have no intention of killing it (even with warranty).  It's just not worth my time.

Stratum proxy runs on xUbuntu 13.10, on Dell Laptop, so no restarts.

I shutdown the blades for 30 secs once a week.

I wouldn't say  never.
I haven't  done it since I started mining with the new gear in early November but probably I'll get a few forced restarts.

Well it's depends... But still It's best in my opinion to let it rest for about 1h then it completly cool downs .. well less if in fresh air especially in winter Cheesy But you can skip that if you have not just any computer.. As i said depends.
