Might the Laptop become damaged when running it with closed lid because of missing aeration or otherwise?

 

I would like to shut of the screen to save save electricity (but after closing it after some time the screen is switched on again).

Air is draw through the bottom and blown out the side, I close my lid when hooked to my TV many times for an hour or more.

Thanks OldPhil.

So each Notebook has the same method doing this.

 

I close my lid when hooked to my TV many times for an hour or more.

OK, means, there is no risk having the lid closed.

 

Thanks again.
