Will a Sony HDR CX260E battery get damaged if I leave the camera charging while I sleep? Does it really stop charging when the orange charging LED is off?

Any modern electronics device should have voltage regulation and auto-shutoff for charging now. It would be a fire hazard for it not to and it's dirt cheap to implement since most of the hardware already needs to be there to get regulated power out of the battery. The only possible exceptions might be with a third party battery or charger, but even then it should normally be ok as long as it's a reputable third party.
