I am just wondering about any of you laptop users who do distributed computing: I currently use a Windows based laptop with a P4. I have run Seti@home on it and UD Agent (both of which are distributed computing programs designed to utilize the idle time of the processor, as all of you probably know). I have found that while running a distributed computing application, my laptop runs at least at 140 degrees topping out at 155 degrees, yet when I disable it, my laptop runs at about 124 degrees. That is up to a 30 degree increase! I am just wondering if any of you other laptop users have this problem or whether it is just more proof of how ****ty the PC is. It just really sucks when the fan is on full tilt all the time and the laptop is still too hot for your lap unless you have thick pants on, and then you sweat like crazy! I am thinking of just keeping Seti@home disabled from now on b/c I don't want to burn out the processor or any other component of the computer for that matter.
