    my laptop comes with a ''decent'' protective sleeve possibly made of cotton,but I am not sure what kind of material it is.

    But I see that some of the tiny cotton flies out and I 'd like to know if it could get into the laptop through the port or the ventilation port, etc??

    Could it ruin my laptop. I am particularly concerned if it could be trapped into the harddrive because I am not using SSD drive.

    Or if I am just over-concerned?

    Totally over-concerned.
    No need to worry for HDD or any other component.

    Your hard drive is sealed; nothing's getting in there.

    What you should do is clean out the heat sink periodically to prevent that from clogging up with lint.
    HDDs have a filter @ the "intake" (its not really an intake port, its for pressure equalization), it does what its designed to do.
