is this okay to do, im running > 20 instances of a java class in netbeans right now, I just want to go to sleep, so im trying to kill this fast so i dont have to waste 5 hours waiting before i can charge it up lol. thanks, also my cpu temp is at and below 70 degrees celsius most of the time, now 66.

i dont think it would hurt it at all.

just making sure, i thought so too, but i just thought it was a crazy idea to begin with. 22 min left after making this thread all the way from 95% battery life:D

An easier way you can do this is to do "yes > /dev/null &" in the terminal a few times.
