Hey guys, So I'm expecting a new monitor to use in conjunction with my MBP any day now. The idea is that I'd use my MBP in clamshell mode for extended periods of time (up to 12 hours max, but going in and out of sleep mode at times through the day). But now I'm having fears that this is not safe for the MBP. From my research on this forum, people have warned about the MBP getting too hot while in clamshell mode for long periods of time. I would not be doing anything intensive while in clamshell (word, web, email, itunes, etc). Down the road I'm planning on getting into video editing but by then I assume the MBP will be open and the external will act as a second screen. The way my desk is setup, the MBP would ideally need to lie flat on a glass surface (so an Mstand is out of the question). I'm aware of "notebook coolers" but have no idea if they are useful or are a solution. Would greatly appreciate your knowledge and advice on the matter. Thanks!
