    Is it alright to keep the MBP plugged in? Can someone out there share their battery charging habits with their MBP. Thank you. :D

    Standard Maintenance
    For proper maintenance of a lithium-based battery, it’s important to keep the electrons in it moving occasionally. Apple does not recommend leaving your portable plugged in all the time. An ideal use would be a commuter who uses her MacBook Pro on the train, then plugs it in at the office to charge. This keeps the battery juices flowing. If on the other hand, you use a desktop computer at work, and save a notebook for infrequent travel, Apple recommends charging and discharging its battery at least once per month.

    As the "battery questions" fill thousands of threads, it is always good to use MRoogle to search or just take a look at the first to pages of the MacBook and MacBook Pro sub-fora.

    I believe you can easily find this information in your computer's printed manual.
