On hybrid mode monitoring page (in dragon gaming centre),there is a caution message that don't remove battery or charger while hbrid power mode is on or it will cause uncertain risks but according to msi's descriptipn:--
Hybrid Power feature enables the CPU and GPU to stay overclocking for a longer time under heavy loading by coordinating the battery and the AC power adapter for the power consumption.
Hybrid Power is auto switch and enabled in following situations:

First of all, AC adapter must be plugged. and meet one of following requirements:

1.Batter power is higher than 30%=>Hybrid Power feature=> ON

2.When battery power decreases to less than 30% and down to 29% or lower => Hybrid Power feature=> OFF
When battery power less than 30%, if you don?t unplug AC power cord, than Battery power must be charged to higher than 80%, Hybrid Power => ON again.
3.When battery power decreases to less than 30% and down to 29% or lower => Hybrid Power=> OFF
If Batter life is back to 30%~80%, and you unplug and plug AC power again, Hybrid Power would be enabled right away. Because detection is reset and back to first situation.
Can anybody explain how to avoid any risk from hybrid power mode
