Well if the computer is on and you unplug the laptop it would be like unplugging a hair dryer while it is on, it will just shut off instantly because that is it's only power source. So in order to move the laptop somewhere else, it is much safer to shut down the computer properly via Start >> Shutdown and then unplug the power cord. Then restart the computer once you have moved it to the next location and have plugged the power cord into the laptop.
My question is if I do unplug the power lead while I am not using it and then plug it in somewhere else, will this cause the laptop to crash?
If you just unplug the laptop while it is on, next time you start the computer you will get a screen like this... And that is not safe... it could cause problems with the hardware.
So yes, once the computer is off you can unplug the power cord and move the laptop.
