    If your laptop is in sleep mode the Indicator Lamp will Flash Orange to show its Sleeping.

    My Lenovo doesn't. The sleep LED is a green sleep sign and the battery LED flashes orange when charging. Depends on the model.

    I would say no issues. You can always unplug the power and see if the battery acts normal or if it dies quickly.
