OOOOHH OOOOHH OOOOHH OOOOHH OOOOHH !!!!!
u kno...iv long wondered whether this was related. i am CERTAIN it is running hot, b/c, among other things, I cover all the airvents with a TOWEL while it is running!
yeah, i kno this is not ideal, but there are reasons (flying liquids!) why I am afraid to leave it exposed. anyway, i figured this was adding wear and tear to the machine, but i didn't think it was a cause of big problems in the SHORT-term.
HOWEVER, last night i left it uncovered (lid closed but no towel) and pointed a FAN at it. as of this morning (11 hrs or so) it is STILL running w/o a crash!
then again, i wasn't SURFING during this time, so maybe that's all that was about. i mean, even with all the heat, i still see 5-6 hrs occasionally when i'm not surfing.
