As long as you're ok with tender food low and slow is the way to go.

If it's soup stew etc just let them simmer. Also, if food is frozen and pulled out that morning let's say the meat people set beef in the sink or a dish to thaw before cooking all the time just be reasonable and remember frozen takes longer to cook and it will add more water to your pot as it thaws and cooks so account for that.

What doesn't make you stronger kills you, or something like that.

If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, HUNT IT DOWN AND KILL IT!

The only time I can remember going 12 hours with my slow cooker was for a whole packer brisket.

This probably doesn't help the poster at this point, but if you have to be away that long I would go the sous vide route. It's literally a set-it-and-forget-it device. I've put roasts in for 18+ hours without them being overcooked.
