A somewhat silly question I suppose, but I still wonder.
How much from the wall or what ever is behind your laptop is your actual device? Mine is about 1dm=10cm. Should it be further away or not?

If your temps are not high when you do that, then it should be ok.
I did not see any changes when I keep it 5-6 m away from a wall compared to 25 cm or so.

What you should not do is keep it near a wall that has a hot radiator. Couple a days ago I didn't knew why the fans were almost maxed out at idle. Then I notices where I have placed it and that is was slowly being cooked.
