    Post power draw from laptop

    what kind of power do laptops normally draw? if i leave a laptop conected to the battery all day long and disconnect it at night, am i asking for trouble? it is a newer car (97 miata), so the alternator works well. i am usually driving some during the day, so the battery will be charging some of the time.

    does this sound like a good idea, or will i most likely end up with a dead battery?

    thanks,

    jeremy

    I chose not to do this just because I am paranoid (I guess)
