    ..that it will not turn on if ill plug it directly.The reason im taking out the battery is that i can work long hours continously with out plugging and unplugging the AC cord if batt is in full charge and at the same time "preserving" the battery's life..hehe...so sorry to confused im a total noob.

    thanks for the reply.

    You aren't supposed to take the battery out while you're using it.

    Keeping your Powerbook plugged in with the battery in while using it is just fine for the battery. It will not cause harm to your battery to use it that way.

    Whoever told you to remove your battery when it reaches a full charge is wrong.

    so its not advisable to take the battery and direct plug to AC?

    btw,i didnt say to remove it when its fully charged.i just wonder why it'll not start when plug directly.

    Thanks again.appreciate it.

    No, it is not advisable to take the battery out and directly plug into and AC outlet.

    I'm pretty sure that the reason it's not working when you take the battery out is because it's not supposed to work that way.

    Several Apple laptops will run at 1/2 the cpu clock speed if it is plugged in with no battery. So you might actually be using a slower computer.
