    hi, should i unplug the power adapter once the laptop battery is charged? does it affect anything?

    also, my led light is showing green while it is charging. usually it shows red or orange.. anyone else have this problem. initially about 20 minutes ago it wasn't charging at all. computer is about 7 months old. i figured its the adapters problem tho and not the actual computer.

    don't really know what you're asking but
    if the battery is charged and it's on green. then it's fine...

    but i don't get what you mean by 20 min charging...

    please explain with a little bit more info

    hi. just wanted to know if once my battery is showing that it is fully charged..is it OK to leave the power adapter plugged into the computer. if this will harm the battery or power adapter in any way.

    the 20 minute thing was.. that the pwer adapter wasn't charging the battery (wasn't working for some reason) about 20 minutes ago..but then all of a sudden it seemed to work again.

    Yes, it's fine to leave your adapter plugged in even if the battery is fully charged.

    Its harmful NOT to leave it pluged in because your battery will be discharging and therefore loosing cycles.
