    I was downloading a short clip, like 15mins, and i went to sleep in the midst of it, when i woke up, it was like 4 hours later wtf and the wifi was pretty hot, so my question is, will this spoil the wifi? Or is it built to handle this kind of extreme heat?

    when I first had it I didn't know what that switch was for. I had it on for so damn long (2+ days)

    Mine is always on, it doesn't do anything unless you are on the net or playing multi player.

    I leave the switch on all the time, but when it is actually running (with the green wifi LED on) I don't stop using it after about an hour at the most.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 which is famous for over heating, and I keep it on for weeks straight. You just gotta know how to handle things. Everyone is always worried about the wifi card. Nobody has ever blown their card when it's gotten hot, I have mine on 24/7. All hardware gets hot when its used. Ever feel the back vent of a PS3?

    true, same here.. (got a Fujitsu/Siemens Amilo though..)

    some advice:
    -put a vaccum cleaner dust filter over your air intake with duct tape, this will effectivly prevent dust from clogging up your processor.

    -when playing games or using some other processor intensive application for longer periods of time, use rmclock to lower the voltage while still using the highest multiplicator. this will make your notebook run fullspeed while preventing excessive heat.

    -dont move your notebook around too much - use it as a desktop PC replacement ;)
