Stability testing is a very subjective thing. Generally, even the most die hard of testers will accept a 24 hour test as proof of stability. Others say 6 or 10 hours. Personally, I don't go nearly that long, instead doing a shorter test and consider things fine unless I notice instability when running other applications.
