i have a g4 ibook, and am new to it. How should i do power stuff. Should you keep it plugged in all the time? let it run out all the time. Right now I have it plugged in while I am using it, and when it is off I take it out. What is the best way to get maximum battery life?

Here is Apple's suggestion
"For proper maintenance of a lithium-based battery, its important to keep the electrons in it moving occasionally. Apple does not recommend leaving your portable plugged in all the time. An ideal use would be a commuter who uses her iBook on the train, then plugs it in at the office to charge. This keeps the battery juices flowing. If on the other hand, you use a desktop computer at work, and save a notebook for infrequent travel, Apple recommends charging and discharging its battery at least once per month."
QUOTE Thanks
