    Only if you leave it plugged in.

    Turning your computer off while the battery is charging will significantly reduce charging time.

    If it is plugged in then it will charge.  It does not have to be turned on to charge.

    The power runs through the battery (thus charging it) before it flows to the system board to run the computer.  So it does not matter if the laptop is turned on.  In fact, it will charge faster when the laptop is turned off because all the poser can go into the battery.  If it is running, then some of the power has to go to the laptop instead of the battery.

    If plugged into an AC adapter that has power, yes.  Should be a battery power charging pilot light on the laptop.

    I've yet to see a laptop that didn't.
