Yup. Generally it's a good idea too, as not involving the battery at all lets it live longer (my friend's battery has stayed at full charge for like, five years since he rarely takes it away from a power socket.

If you are putting it on power for a long period of time, that will over-stress the battery. Causing loss of battery power, as Yami said.

I thought that generally true for newer Li-Ion batteries in laptops? Since they don't have the same "memory effect" that older batteries did.

Well the battery on my laptop is still about the same as it was when I got it, and I leave it plugged in with the battery very often.

Yes. It shouldn't harm your computer and it won't wear out your battery.
