Both the laptop and cooling pad have an intake and exhaust. They don't just do one or the other. The intake is at the back of the laptop and the exhaust is on the bottom. That is why it is important the have the laptop on a hard surface. When a laptop starts to get hot, it means the intake is usually clogged. Sometimes this can be fixed by getting a can of compressed air and directing the nozzle in the vent opening and blowing it out
Laptops do run hot and a cooling pad will help. The same cleaning procedure applies
why won't my laptop work?
Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
