With the comp on. Is that too much for the battery? Its Li-Ion. Would my battery last longer if I took it out when I have the laptop plugged in? From what I was told, you should constantly try to keep the Li-Ion batteries as full as possible to have the maximum battery life.

If the laptop maker has designed the charger correctly, it should be OK.

I certainly leave mine on for a week or so at a time, and it has not hurt it.

The simplest check is to feel if the batteries are staying warm. If so, they may get damaged by the constant charge, mine stay almost cold after they have charged for a day or a week. They may be warm while recharging though.
