Hello, how long can you leave beer in the primary fermenter?

I have had a beer in primary for as much as 4 weeks without issue.  Most of the time, I am holding it for not quite 2 weeks with the last few days in cold crash.  I think the answer really depends a lot on the health of the yeast when pitched and the temperature at which you are holding the fermenter.
