Hello I have a cbox laptop. When want to keep it on 24/7. I wonder if that might hurt it? When its summer my laptop start its fan for 2-3 minutes than calms down again. It does that aproximitely in every ten minutes. It starts its fan when its 55 C degree and stops when it is 50 C degree. Are these values good enough to leave it on for a long time.

A second question: Is it ok to leave its battery plugged in? Cause I heard that When the charge is full laptop uses only electrycity not the battery.

yes you could try running the laptop 24/7. If i were you i'd remove the battery as it will last longer (if its for a long time i'd recommend putting it in a fridge wrapped in a plastic bag).
just make sure the cooling system is clear of dust and try to keep the monitor off as much as possible.
55C isnt too bad but raise up the laptop to allow clear airflow.

Test it for a few days if it gets really hot stop.

ps i dont really recommend this as it'll reduce the laptop life and use quite a bit of electricity.
