So I have an HP 14-af118au laptop that I've been using for about two - three (maybe? I forgot kek) years. Since I have been living in my own room (and college), I have been constantly falling asleep while leaving my laptop on, leaving it on overnight for 5-8 hours or so.
I have been doing this for quite a while and I'm worried I might be asking too much of it.
Here are the things I've done to my laptop: 1. I left my laptop on overnight in high peformance, no automatic sleep mode, while charging (Quite a few times) 2. I left my laptop on overnight in high peformance, but with sleep mode and charging 3. I left my laptop on overnight, but didn't charge it, so it lost its battery and shut down by itself (most common so far)
I have an external fan and my room has AC. But I have a timer to turn it off at 2 AM and I usually tend to my laptop at 6 AM or so. I'm worried because my laptop have been emiting faint metallic smell (perhaps burning?) and I would really like to keep it alive for more years to come.
Is it okay for me to treat my laptop like this? And is the smell something I need to pay attention to? It's faint, but I sometimes smell it.
