Set laptop not to standby upon lid close, forgot to set it back after lecture and left it in the bag for 80 minutes.
When I open my back, and RMClock reporting 95'C on my CPU and Speedfan report HDD at 70'C.
I'm quite amazed my laptop still worked. The reliability of my laptop will probably go down the sink in the months to come, and I may need to get the HDD replaced just in case of an early failure.
Surprisingly (or not so suprisingly) I've never done any backup from my laptop before. Seems to be a good chance to start.
If I did fry my harddrive today I would have lost all lecture notes I've made in the last 2 years
Not a good thing especially when exam time is coming close.
I wonder if there is any program that will standby the computer when HDD exceed a certain temperature (i.e. 55'C which something is obviously going wrong.)
The use of a notebook backpack seems to be have a negative effect on this kind of human errors because of the poor (or should I say horrible) ventilation inside the thing. Glad I actually don't have anything else in my backpack, otherwise I think the laptop will definitely stop working.
