    Hi, I was wondering because its the summer my primary computer right now is my MBA.

    I was wondering if it was okay to keep it plugged into the AC, I was thinking because it would prevent cycles from happening, but I'm worried about over charging.

    I greatly appreciate any help and I thank you in advanced.

    It's okay to leave it on while using it. Not too sure about leaving it on overnight, I wouldn't recommend that.

    You can leave it overnight and as long as you like. The only stipulation for the Air is to use it battery-only at least once a month.You can have it plugged on all the time. The battery has all a the necessary safeguards in order to avoid overcharging/overheating. There is an apple FAQ for batteries, search for it :)
