Hey everyone! So I'm now the proud owner of a MacBook Pro. I've had it for about a week now and as a new switcher I'm very happy with it. My main question is that since I've had it, whenever I'm not using it throughout the day I just close the lid and let it sleep. During this time I don't have it on the charger. I leave it in sleep mode during the night and plug the charger into it to charge overnight. Then in the morning I unplug it and let it run on the battery all day. Is it bad to do this? Should I leave it plugged in all the time and just drain the battery once a week? Thank you for you info.

If you are sitting next to an outlet, yes, I would leave it plugged in and do a calibration once a month as recommnded by Apple.
