Is there an app out there that will monitor uptime?
What I'm looking for is something I can install on a computer to see if and when it's connection to the internet drops.

I've been looking for a way to monitor my data connection; not the usage but the availability of the connection itself. In short, my data connection has to be reliable so I can receive alerts for my job. I want to be alerted and even awaken if my data connection drops for any reason.
I put my laptop to suspend mode, woke it up later, and now it shows uptime some 23 hours (with uptime), which is obviously not true. I suspect uptime simply returns the difference between the timestamp at boot and now.
Is there a way to show uptime excluding time spent in low power modes like suspend and hibernate?
