1.) Is it bad to charge the laptop overnight? As in, can you overcharge your laptop? Cause I don't want to mess up my battery.

2.) Is it bad to carry my laptop in a backpack while it is in sleep mode?

Sorry if these are stupid questions but I don't want to mess up my expensive laptop. :D

Thanks for the help.

1) No, it stops at 100%. Just be sure to make a complete discharge/recharge cycle at least once a month and your battery should stay healthy.

2) No, that is one of the things sleep is made for. I do it all the time.
