Default Laptop Battery First Charge

When first charging a laptop's battery, would you first let it sit and charge like any other electronic? It isn't stated in the quickstart.

Hmmm well in my job i set up many new laptops and we dont take anything into consideration we simply plug the power in set the laptop up (install software) and then switch off the machine when its finished. You can use it whilst its doing its first charge it wont effect it at all!

So it's not like an ipod, pda, or cellphone where it requires several hours of charging before first usage,

I see... but I should wait until it's fully charged before turning off if I decide to use it out of the box, or I can just let it sit and charge, right?
