Okay, so I don't have a mac, might be getting one when I'm older, but I thought I'd ask you guys about my laptop. I have a normal HP laptop and was wondering what the best way to use it was. I use it everyday and normally shut it off every night and then turn it back on in the afternoon. Should I be keeping it on at night? Should I keep it plugged in when I'm using it if I can? I just want to keep it as long as possible and run it until it dies. Thanks in advance. Hope this is the right forum.
