[Oliver Peters] "OTOH, it's not recommended to run any laptops constantly with the power adapter plugged in."

Yes, my understanding is that this can be a cause of the batteries expanding and thus making the "clicks" on the trackpad very difficult. I believe have a bit of this going on at the moment.

[Oliver Peters] "So there, I'm not sure if it is ever truly off unless you pulled the battery."

You mentioned with the battery in, a complete shutdown might not be possible anyway. Speaking of removing the battery, I will have to remove my battery in the very near future to see if and how much it has expanded and how much this is effecting the difficulty of the clicking on the trackpad. It might be time for me to put in a new battery.

Speaking of general maintenance, do you ever randomly zap the PRAM for good measure. I used to do back in the "old days" but not so much anymore.
