I have a new HP Compaq 610. Most of the time I use it plugged and with the battery removed, to avoid wearing it. Sometimes I need to move it to somewhere else - currently I hibernate the machine, move it, plug it in its new location, and power it up again.
I wonder if it's possible to plug the battery while the machine is on and running on AC power, move it, plug it, and unplug the battery again, without ever turning it off. I'm afraid to try it myself. Does anyone know?
