Hi dear forum team, one quick question:
whats the most efficient way of working on a laptop with it being connected to the power ac adapter, i have
heard somewhere that in order to save batterys life it is recomended to take the battery out everytime
you are connected to the power supply, is that true?
My current laptop overheats everytime hence switches off by itself, could it be because of the battery?

All batteries naturally discharge regardless of whether they live in the laptop or the kitchen cupboard. In other words, over time all batteries will go flat eventually.

Laptops tend to overheat usually because they end up living on the bed or the sofa's arm, the vents get blocked up, no cool air = too hot laptop = shut off.

Solution? Clean out the gunk, (gently), and she's good to go.
