It is from the first time you run Jaws then after 40 minutes you
need to reboot. Not from the first time your machine is turned on.
Your machine could be on for a year and jaws will run for 40 minutes
if it is the first time you used it in that year.

Thanks for the info. I may end up snagging it when it comes out.
I don't use JAWS myself, but I do occasionally tutor for it, or
need to check something out in it, and the 40-minute mode is the
bane of my existence. It's not the 40 minute limitation, as I
never take anywhere close to that to figure something out, but
that it's not timed from whenever you might happen to want to
invoke JAWS, but from when the system was started up (which I
think is insanely stupid). It's not rocket science to set this up
such that "now" is recorded in a file, and you get 40 minutes from
"now" and cannot get another 40 minutes unless you have rebooted
or some period of time from "the last now" has passed.
For those of us who leave our machines up and running 24/7 for
extended periods of time, and who keep lots of work up and
running, too, having to reboot to get a "quick check" of something
from JAWS is maddening.
