Is it okay to leave the laptop running 24/7, ie not shutting it down.
I have a VPN running as well so I want VPN on all the time too.
What's the best way to go about this without hurting the laptop? ie power management strategy
I have the battery in it as well as it connected to power supply in the wall.
Model name: 20384
Intel i5-42104 cpu 1.7ghz
BIOS version 9DCN79WW (V2.00)

Your suggesstion would conserve the energy usage of the laptop.
I have left it running for days on end and seems cool enough. When I go to bed, I would like the notebook to take a break without losing vpn or internet coonection in the process. I use ethernet cable to router.

Power Settings are curently:
On battery, turn off after: 1 minute
When plugged in, turn off after: 10 minutes
On battery, PC goes to sleep after: Never
When plugged in, PC goes to sleep: Never
I need the battery in the notebook when its plugged in because I get random power disturbances sometimes lasting nano-seconds or brief minutes.
I'm getting the battery is 70% notice, should I do anything different under power management to give the notebook breathing space or just let it run as is?
I notice to when I have put it too sleep I lose my vpn connection, which I don't want to lose. What's the best way to configure this?
