This is a question that I thought of the other day.
I know its not good to constantly be charging your Laptop but what if the charger was constantly plugged in to a wall outlet? Do you think you should unplug it? What if you don't?
ie. You unplug your laptop but leave your charger still in the outlet.

I know about this problem FIRST hand. I had a laptop, and it recently quit on me, RIP Jan 1, 2012. I left it plugged in ALL the time, I never unplugged it. Around September the charger port started to act up, so I had to buy new chargers every couple of weeks as it rejected the charger around the 2nd or 3rd week of use. Then around December, the charger port started to act stranger, it only charged if you put about 15 pounds of pressure on the charger and the port. Finally on New Years Day, it quit on me, and it didn't charge ever since. Also, if you leave the charger on too long, your battery starts to wear down, and Windows 7 will annoy you with "Battery Health Warnings" at the battery icon in the taskbar.

I have my laptop connected to a monitor, also using extended displays (so my laptop and my external monitor are working together to make a bigger display), and have a High Performance power plan(meaning "use as much power as you want to make the computer work as fast as possible"). I work on it for over 4 to 10 hours everyday. I have it connected to a charger and the wall ALL the time. I never leave it ON at night, I always either turn it OFF or HIBERNATE it.

leaving your charger in the wall when it's not connected to the laptop is still using power. it's best to unplug things to save on power when your not using them, adapters keep pulling power if there left in, even if there not connected to anything on the other end.
