    I was wondering if there is any reason to put the MBP to sleep if it is plugged into the power? Basically, I mean can't my laptop operate like a desktop if I leave it plugged in most of the time? Are there any advantages to sleep mode that I am overlooking? Should I be worried about components burning out or some type of power failure? I am not familiar with laptops, as this is one of the few I have owned in my lifetime.

    I do not like sleep mode because when I wake the computer up there is lag for it to recognize my Internet connection.

    Thanks!

    Nope, you shouldn't worry about not putting your computer to sleep. However, if you are leaving it plugged into AC power you should calibrate your battery once a month.

    my macbook runs as a desktop for weeks at a time without going to sleep -- and then it's only because i really need it to be portable for awhile.
