Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, as long as all the air vents are free from fluff and dust it wont over heat or anything like that, if you switch the laptop off but leave it plugged in then all this will do is waste your electric but it wont do any harm at all to the laptop.
How ever one thing to remember is if your not using your laptop only on the battery and you only use it when its plugged into the mains then its a good idea to remove the battery and store it somewhere safe, i say this because with it being used on the mains with the battery is what this does is causes the life of the battery to drop so say you was getting 5 hours on the battery after say 6 months you would only get 1 hour from a full charge, so if you dont use the laptop often on the battery only then just remove the battery and just use the laptop whilst its plugged in.
this wont do any harm to the laptop and it stops the battery failing so take the battery out and just run it off the mains.
apart from that as long as all the air vents are cleaned regular and checked for fluff build up then you should find you will have no problems.
the only thing that will happen is that the power pack may get hot, but they get hot during use so as long as the power pack is not on plastic or something flammable like wooly jumper their will be no problems.
I hope that has eased your mind a bit and give you some idea of the kind of things you can do to save the life of the battery.
Most people in offices remove their battery when running on the mains due to the fact that the battery will get hot whilst its being used on the mains so removing the battery stops it over heating and slowing the laptop down.

Nothing bad should happen. However, overcharging the battery can reduce the life of it.
hope this helps.
