yesterday, when I have the AC cord plugged in, it doesn't stop charging
when the battery is full. (When I say 'full', it shows 99%, which is
normal, and obtaining a reading from the acpi bus shows that the charge
is not increasing).
Would this be a problem with the battery needing replacement or a
problem with the charging circuitry in my laptop? More importantly, is
my laptop likely to be damaged by leaving the AC cord in when this is
I tend to use my computer for long periods of time (up to twelve hours
sometimes) on AC with the battery in place, which I read can fry a
battery fairly quickly. Is it a good idea to take the battery out when
using mains power?
