I am in the middle of a sizeable, enterprise wide computer (laptops and desk tops) replacement project, cx, and have come across many instances of a users' old computer - mostly laptops, experiencing a thermal shut down.

When asked, many admit to placing their pc on a table clothe, a fabric placemat, or other surface that restricts the airflow through the vents on the bottom, and I've seen many that have their vents clogged with dust.

I've never experienced it, so I'm not sure if the pc provides a clear and obvious notification to the user that it no longer wants to work because it's too hot, but looking at the event log in the BIOS will show it.
