I want to keep my lenevo g50 laptop ON all the time and I think this can damage the battery. I cant find a way to disable battery from BIOS so i removed the battery physically and kept it in a plastic bag. When I would need to make it portable I will plug in the battery again from there. I just want to make sure that doing this thing will be OK? maybe if i keep the battery like this detached it could loose charging power too.
Other way which I have seen is to enable conservative mode which will keep battery from 55-60% all the time. I think removing the battery physically is better, please advise on this.

Welcome to the Lenovo community!
Yes. It is fine to leave the battery charging while it is being used. Myself and everyone at my company runs off full battery and keeps it plugged in all day. After 2+ years my battery is still fine and holds its charge for hours.
Most laptop batteries these days are Lithium Ion based - so constant charging won't hurt them.

Does Lenovo has some sort of battery desktop mode? I'm not the most tech savvy, but just found that mode on my Dell (I use it with a docking station, so it is effectively my desktop). I often have my Lenovo plugged in/on all day too (hooked up to a TV with HDMI), so was wondering if there are any specific settings designed for that use. I try to just keep the screen on low brightness and enable power saver mode, but not sure if that is actually helpful. Thanks!
