English term or phrase: plugges AC Adapter inn i en stikkontakt når den datamaskin ikke er i bruk
I had to revise the sentence to show that it's not the battery that gets plugged into the electrical outlet, but the AC adapter. Also, I want to specify that this must be done when "the computer" is not in use. The full sentence is below. Did I revise it correctly? (Probably not!)

For å sikre at batteriet forblir fulladet, plugges
AC Adapter inn i en stikkontakt når den datamaskin ikke er i bruk!

Norwegian translation:bør omformeren koples til maskinen og et strømuttak når datamaskinen ikke er i bruk
Explanation:
The whole sentence: For å sikre at batteriet forblir fulladet, bør omformeren koples til maskinen og et strømuttak når datamaskinen ikke er i bruk!
You should work on the passive voice here - when the battery gets plugged in (or not), who does the plugging? Please also note that just plugging in the AC adapter isn't going to suffice - it needs to be plugged into a wall outlet AND the computer.
