Laptop doesn't detect when battery is charged

    I've had my laptop (Acer Aspire 3613) for a couple of months. Since
    yesterday, when I have the AC cord plugged in, it doesn't stop charging
    when the battery is full. (When I say 'full', it shows 99%, which is
    normal, and obtaining a reading from the acpi bus shows that the charge
    is not increasing).

    Would this be a problem with the battery needing replacement or a
    problem with the charging circuitry in my laptop? More importantly, is
    my laptop likely to be damaged by leaving the AC cord in when this is

    I tend to use my computer for long periods of time (up to twelve hours
    sometimes) on AC with the battery in place, which I read can fry a
    battery fairly quickly. Is it a good idea to take the battery out when
    using mains power?
