Is it safe to always keep the PC plugged in after removing the battery pack?

2009-08-10, 13:17 PM

As I'm not going to move my pc for some time, I have removed the battery pack and use the AC power instead.

But I would like to know whether its safe to keep it plugged into the AC 24/7? and does it consume energy or does it damage anything when the pc is switched off?

its okay, i use to do it all the time with other thinkpads when my battery died on me. It won't damage your laptop.
