    I installed Windows to play league of legends on it. I have the 1.3Ghz, 512 version. The thing is, about two or three times in the middle of the game the screen will shut down, I think the computer is actually going into sleep for a moment or something because I actually get disconnected.

    Does this happen to any of you? Could it be because windows gets the laptop too hot?

    Is it physically getting hot? I wanted to see more how Core M performs, so deliberately loaded the CPU (1.2) to 100% it didn't shut down, it did however throttle down to 1.4GHz, however when I placed it on a small powered cooler (elevator) and powered up the fan, the MacBook is able to consistently hold a 100% CPU load @ 2GHz + ambient temp was 26C...interesting

    If you think it`s sleeping disable sleep on mains power in the Energy Saver preferences, there will be a change or not as the case may be.

    I did disable it, I actually put windows in performance mode. It only happens there, when I play league on Mac it never does it...

    I wonder if it has anything to do with Windows per se...

    Update: I am using Windows 8.1 by the way.
