What does a computer battery do?
In a laptop, your computer battery keeps your computer running when it isn't plugged in. The batteries on a laptop will eventually run out and will automatically recharge when you plug your laptop back in. With a desktop computer, a small battery keeps your computers internal clock powered when your computer is not plugged in.

How is a laptop different from a desktop?
Basically, a laptop is designed to be portable, and can run off an internal battery until the battery goes flat. A desktop is designed to sit on a desk, table, workstation, etc, and is not meant to be portable. Unlike the more compact laptop, the desktop usually has an external monitor, keyboard and mouse, and is unlikely to have an internal battery. Both the laptop and desktop can be run off the mains.

How much electricity does a laptop consume compared with desktop computer?
A laptop has a battery pack and can be run on the battery for some time. It needs recharging which will use electricity but not as much as a desktop computer. The amount of power any computer will use depends on a number of factors such as the amount of time it is left on standby. You are probably better to leave the desktop on standby than to turn it off, because it could use more power to reboot all the time than when left on standby. This would only apply if you use the desktop daily or more often.
