Usually it only turns on when the CPU is used alot or when it starts to warm up. But are you saying that it runs when it's shut off? Then no.

Why is my laptop unable to run off battery power, even though battery shows fully charged and AC is unplugged

It's time for you to replace your battery.

how old is your laptop? and how do u use it - do u leave it plugged into the wall socket all the time? It's common for batteries to die out after a couple of years. however, if the computer overheats or if you leave it plugged in all the time, it's life cycle will decrease. Charge - discharge cycles. That's how you are suposed to do it.

laptops isn't suposed to be on your lap if you like it there the cooling pad is a nice item to have.
It's not needed but if you play games, do graphic design or make music it lets your computer run faster the more cooling you have. if your computer runs hot it will start lagging, and if it gets to hot it will restart.

get one with a big fan it makes less noice, then check if it's comfortable in the store.
i have one my computer gets to hot for me to have in the lap so i jsut had to get one.

Cooling fan wont come on when suposed to, i replaced thermostat, relays & temp sensor, fans come on only when car is off & whit ac on

Ive run into this a few times,you have a bad coolant fan sensor, this car uses two one operates the fans when the key is off and the other operates them when the car is running, theres one sensor in the front cooling housing and the other on the rear housing, replace the other coolant sensor and that will solve your problem, take note theres two sensors on that rear housing one for the fan and one for the computer. hope this helps.

Fan continues to run

I don't think a Mercedes coolant problem will fix your laptop. The fan on most laptops runs all of the time. Many are sensor driven and the fan speed will increase with processor activity. If your fan seems to be running okay, and is not making too much noise, you may just need to take the unit apart and clean out the dust bunnies. They will greatly affect the heating properties. If you need a service manual for disassembly, it is available at
