I am an old guy, and need some help. I have a Gateway laptop computer, and I am wondering how to tell when it is fully charged. It starts charging when a purple light comes on, and then after a little bit a blue light comes on. Does that actually go out when it is fully charged, or does it remain on?
Thank you.

Leave it for a few hours, I suspect it'll stay on. All the laptops here have a light that indicates they're connected to A/C power.

Thank you John Will. I suspected that was the case, but didn't want to disconect before battery was fully charged. Thank you again.

When you boot the laptop and disconnect the power, the battery status will show up in the system tray, you can check the state of charge there.
