Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3why it didnt help?what u didnt understand?:) The battery is using its charge while the pc is off,but when the pc is on battery is not being used so it should last for a long time. If you leave your pc off for a long time it means that the battery will last less.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a small battery (like a circle), it's responsible for letting the clock works either the PC is on or off.
