    I left class and put my t4210 in my case in my backpack and 3 hours later I needed so I went to take it out and it was still running in my backpack with the fans on high and really hot!!! I have the extra battery in the DVD slot so it still lasts a while. I took it out and opened it up and it looked like this with half the screen black. :( I thought my screen was screwed and I possibliy hurt the life of it but then it slowly started coming back to me :) Here is the video of it I thought it was pretty cool :cool:

    Well, that's a relief! :)

    I guess, next time assure the unit is off before putting it into the backpack then there probably won't be any long term damage. :)

    The Apache Servers down again..... I'll watch it later.

    In the meantime, I remember someone else who left their Tablet in their backpack switched on.
    However, that machine and owner was not so lucky... The overheating had damaged components on the Motherboard.

    Anyway, you can get around this (besides ensuring it's not left on before putting it back in your backpack); use temperature monitoring software like HDD Temperature which not only monitors your machines temp but will put it into Hibernation if it gets to hot.
