I don't know anything technical about laptops, but I just bought one. I am planning on taking it to my classes to take notes with. So I was wondering if it is ok to leave it on, just shut the case to take it from my house to my class. It seems to me that it would be bad to do that, but I don't know. It really isn't that big of a deal to shut it down and restart it, but I would rather just take it while it is on and bring it back w/o having to restart twice in an hour.
