Well.. battery gets warm... remove the element and ambience is reduced. It's simple. But be prepared if your plug somehow falls out or your power gets cut.. Your unit is turning off and losing your data.

Personally I like to think keeping the battery in lets my charger not work so hard. Just a thing of mine, most likely not true.

Bear in mind the reduction will be quite negligible, as batteries mostly grow warm only during its charge cycle.

Once the battery is charged, you'll see no noticeable temperature change. Like your phone, the computer will demand less amperage from your charging block once the battery is full.

it says in the manual, to take out the battery if you plan on using ac power for ( i forget how long) this is not for temperature reasons but to save your battery from going bad.

Well, it does not help with an actual temperature issue. You might see a small drop, but nothing significant. If the laptop is peaking at temps that might be detrimental, then there is something else going on.

Taking the battery out and running on AC exclusively is fine. Just take note of what Darnassus said; if that power is cut, there's no fail safe without a charged, working battery inserted.
