Can you share your solution and I can mark it as the correct answer.
This way it may help others who may find this post in later times.
Seems my indesign will only launch with the power cable plugged in. Assuming that's normal.
No - definitely not normal
Then I'm lost as this has happened on numerous occasions.
Same here - must be something to do with your laptop power settings for when plugged in and not plugged in.
I agree with Eugene--there is something else going on with your computer (presumedly a laptop😁). InDesign doesn't care if the laptop is plugged in or not. Your solution may work but I would be concerned with the long-term health of your computer.
You didn't mention if you are using a Mac or Windows computer. Try turning off the power saving mode when running on battery.
