    You can't overcharge it.  It can be left connected 24/7.

     

     

    Movies put a heavy load on the CPU.

     

    Is it sitting on a hard flat surface so air can circulate underneath it.?

    It is not a laptop and can overheat if used in your lap.

     

    Does the fan speed up to maximum speed?
