Default How to run my laptop from the mains?

My windows said something to me when I was using my new laptop today, something about not setting the power to run straight from the mains when I had it plugged into a power supply.

I think it meant the power was going to the battery, and I was then draining the power from the battery, when I could have been using the power right from the wall.

There is a battery icon in the lower right of my screen (in the program tray), but I have no idea which option to select?

I'm running windows 2000

Cheers for any help yo!
