Don't put the laptop on a blanket or other soft thing. Put small rubber feet on the bottom to increase the air gap.

Aye thats true, but that takes more brains than some people have plus it usually voids any warranty.
yes, but it'* a laptop cooler, i can see you not wanting to try and flip the fan on a $1500 laptop, but a $20 to $30 laptop cooler

Maybe some are flat enough, or don't have feet where you could just flip them around?

I've got several of the Targus Coolpads that I use, work pretty good, stop your crotch from catching fire and all...

Thanx alot Bandit, WoW! Did it make a difference. After loading the program it told me my peak temp so far had been 54 degrees C, it was at 45 degreesC before i chose force fans to high speed. Within a minute the CPU and Memory went down to 34degreesC and the GPU to 38degreesC and the memory now at 33degreesC Will it hurt the fans to run at full speed all the time?? Really cool icon in tray that tells all the temps and the fans RPM.
