Grilled keyboard with fries and mayo

It is very important to keep that base of your notebooks ventilated. Plonk it on a soft pillow and play flash games for long hours and what you get is grilll.. That's exactly what a girl who plays a lot of flash games did .. :P  . 

The thing to remember is that even though some processors like the intel atom are capable of operating at 100 deg C !  the other things may not be . In this case the thin keyboard somehow got all the heat and fried !! . 

you can keep a watch on the core temperature using something like this :

 cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ00/temperature

Also its good practice to us a frequency governor  and keep the processor on "power save"    unless you  really need the extra cycles.
