I took off my battery to make sure there's no extra drainage
i've never actaully shutdown my ibook overnight since the day i've bought it...just restart it for updates...only time i actually restart my system...otherwise, i just close the lid.
I have it hooked up to my monitor, so technically, it's still running at full speed
mine is always on. well my power book.
optimal treatment of lithium-ion batteries actually suggests that you take it out, though (high temperatures, like near CPUs, are especially damaging to Li-ions). Though with magsafe I can see your point. it's all tradeoffs
obviously apple doesn't give a shit about that, but the average consumer probably does... Li-ion batteries lose permanent capacity most quickly when they sit in high temperatures at full charge, which is commonplace in laptops:
Just letting mac shack dudes know what's up with them it's not a bad idea to remove the battery if your laptop is primarily a desktop replacement.
i end up walking around with my laptop and having to charge it everyday after i drain the battery
usually i never take the battery out, even if it's fully charged and plugged in
i have a feeling that my battery will not last more than 2 years
i think i will probably take my battery out when its fully charged and i can sit down with the power cord plugged in.
