Recently I noticed that my Macbook pro is getting over heated and on the other day I almost felt like it will cause a fire…but the good and old Windows Vista shutdown itself without any notice …I am guessing may be because of the heat or it could have done my Macbook heating sensors.
What is happening is; lately when I goto office, I immediately connect the Macbook Pro to externalÂ HP 24″ LCD monitor along with external mouse and keyboard and close the Macbook lid by bootingÂ to Windows Vista underÂ directÂ Bootcamp.
Normally its getsÂ hot and the fan spins like anything under Bootcamp. But otherday it was such that I couldn’t even touch the laptop at all…man ? what kind of air ventilations the laptopÂ has when the lid is closed ? Looks likeÂ closing the lid is the actual cause. IÂ only noticed this when my laptop suddenly shutdown itself without any notice (just power-off, not a regular clean shutdown) and powering on back,Â boots to Windows and then shuts down automatically. AfterÂ keeping the lid open forÂ 10-15 minutes and then restarting the Macbook seemed to work fine.
So, no more closing of theÂ Macbook LID when connected to external monitor…Â
