Also make sure your battery charging scheme is set accordingly to preserve the life of your battery as I suspect you're probably using it like a desktop at the moment. Keeping your laptop charged at 100% while plugged in 24/7 can degrade your battery overtime. Or worse, trigger it to swell. 

 

We had a mini pandemic of swelling laptop batteries recently after a year of employees leaving their laptops plugged in 24/7 when working from home.

Absolutely. You're not doing any damage.

 

However it's not uncommon for applications that are running to start hogging resources after they're open for extended periods. Sleeping your laptop does not force these applications to 'clean up'. A shutdown does.

 

So, just reboot occasionally and you'll be fine.

As was previously said, it's fine, but issues may arise unless you restart periodically.

I'm not a professional, just an enthusiast. I don't know everything.

It will degrade your battery over time but if it's always plugged in that doesn't matter.
