How to properly remove AC adapter from laptop (unplugging it)

Hello, I was wondering what is the proper procedure for unplugging the laptop.


Are you allowed to simply remove the AC adapter from the AC adapter jack, or must you first unplug the adapter from the wall and then remove the AC adpater jack(laptop) connection. 


Also, should the computer be turned off if one would like to remove the adapter connection, or can it be done while the laptop is still running. 


I know these questions are quite basic, but It would put my mind at ease if they were answered. Thanks.

Re: How to properly remove AC adapter from laptop (unplugging it)

Hello Farooq,


It will not make any difference if you remove the power adapter from the notebook directly.

However, if we will go back to our basic time, it is always guided to switch off the power then remove the power cable,


I will suggest if it is possible for you to switch off the power then remove the adapter from notebook is well.



It is not necessary to turn off the notebook to remove the power adapter.


Best Regards,
