not having turned on a laptop for 4 months

could it be a problem?

could it be better to the electronics that I sometimes turn on it , let electricity go and run it , let it "exercise" a little bit?

It depends. Most components should be fine without being used. I think I saw somewhere that some ssd's can experience data loss if left inactive for a long period of time, but apart from that I can't find anything about it. Basically it should be fine, most of the components will not care.

Hi

Only problem if no separate CMOS battery and laptop battery runs flat

then date & time will need entering & correcting and cmos configuration setting may be lost

Advice I have seen is charge battery to about 50% before long term storage (not 100%)

regards

Mike Barnes
