    I recently acquired a Vaio laptop along with the docking station. I have little experience with laptops and was wondering if it would be bad for the battery to just leave the laptop plugged into the docking station when I don't need it mobile?

    Thanks,
    JTN

    Modern laptops have very intelligent chargers installed.

    I never bother to remove the battery, never had a poor battery life as a result, with 3 different laptops.

    But if it's the original battery, its at the end of its life anyway.
