It is too hot! Do I place it right away in the sleeve?

    It has been very since I wanted to ask this question.

    Most of the time I plan the time I will be in a space,
    so that five to ten minutes before I leave I can turn
    the computer off to let it cool down. Do you do the
    same, or do you slide the computer right after using
    it to the slide or case? Is there a difference between
    letting a computer cooling down open on a desk, or
    cooling down inside a sleeve and/or in a portfolio -
    and does the latter damage the computter ??

    Thank you, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    It really doesn't matter whether you put it in the sleeve immediately or wait. The aluminum cases do conduct heat well, but they also dissipate heat fairly quickly once the system is powered down. The only concern would be putting a running unit in a sleeve, because it could easily overheat in that scenario. But that scenario applies to most notebooks.

    You're really overthinking this and waiting a useless amount of time for it to cool.

    Just make sure it's properly asleep then put it in the bag and go. No need to wait, you won't damage anything, it's designed to work that way.
