laptop battery / AC question

I just purchased a new Gateway 520 cse laptop. It seems to be alright. It has a Lithium Ion battery.
I have searched in my manuals and on the net, but have yet found the answer to my question. Here goes.

My laptop will be plugged in most of the time, therefore the battery will propably always be charged fully. I would like to know if leaving it plugged in all the time will overcharge the battery or does it quit charging when full charge is reached. I did read where the lithium ion batteries are not memory resident which is a good thing.

I know I should propably use the battery once in a while just to keep things working like they should.
Thanks for any light you can shed.

This is a tricky question... I tell most customers if they are going to leave it plugged into the AC then to not even leave the battery in it.. It is more of a damned if you do, damned if you dont type of thing...

The battery could die because it never was charged.. or it could die because of the undercharges... Laptop batteries are finicky... My best answer is get a battery replacement plan incase something goes wrong because them bastards usually cost 100+ dollars..

Not much help, but the only other thing is go to Gateway and ask them what they prefer you to do...

I got some kinda rule with my laptop battery usage.

1. I always plug the ad adaptor when I'm in the office.
2. when the battery is fully charged, I remove it from the laptop.
3. I use battery when I'm at home and only plug it when the battery is about to dry.

hope it helps
