Windows 7: High Motherboard/HDD temperatures while idle

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

Would an air compressor do the same thing, as the people I'm staying with have a air compressor in their garage.

Many laptops have very important vents on the bottom. In this aspect, the design of Apple laptops is far superior as there are no vents on the underside.
That is what everybody should agree with :)

Never put a running laptop on a mattress, thick carpets, couch, sofa, or pillow, unless we have any flat board to support it. Most of laptop have only 3-4mm space underneath which the air intake somewhere located. I noted starting from Core-i series the heat quite excessive and it affect the temperature of the board area.

But hell, my kids keep doing it while I'm away.

Theoretically, yes.

Practically, the problem is that the pressure is normally too high and can cause some serious damage. I have seen a computer repair shop use one, but they were very experienced technicians and had adjusted the air pressure so as to not be destructive.

The person I'm living with is an electrician perhaps he'd know how to adjust the PSI so that it wouldn't be damaging.
