Hello, I have a question about how long I can keep my Arduino running before anything bad will happen. Can I keep my Arduino Uno on 24/7/365?

Thanks,

Yes it will run as long as you continue to pay your electric bill each month.

Ha ha thanks. I could use solar electricity, but it's just an alarm clock. Time to kill the grid! Not really that much power...
