Right now, I tend to average around 45 a week. I am salaried with overtime (actually salary at 35, 1x time to 40 and 1.5x for 40+) and this seems to be the level or work I get at non-crunch times without really trying. I kind of want to bump this up...not entirely for the money but for the advancement potential and that I think it would force me to live a more "intense" life. Just like when I started working during school (rather than my first year where I just had school) and having less free time led to me actually doing more productive things with the time I had.
I figure that it is better to do it now before I have a family and things like that to eat up my time...get the big steps out of the way by busting ass now. What is weird is that it seems like I already have a reputation for doing this...If I get in an elevator with some more senior person at 5:30 it is not uncommon to get some comment like "ooh, they're letting you go at a reasonable time for once."

Even when it gets busy, I tend to have lots of bits of short downtime...send off a piece of work-product to someone and have to wait around for some feedback or a new task. Perfect for getting in a few threaks on SF (or reading some news headlines or watching youtube or whatever everybody else in the office does).
