    ROG Zephyrus laptop very hot when lid is closed

    Hi all!

    New member here with a new ASUS laptop.

    I did have one question though; I typically like to keep my laptop plugged in and on, I don't have it go to sleep when I close the lid for quick access.

    However, when I shut the lid, the laptop gets extremely hot and temperatures shoot up after 5-10 min with the lid closed. Opening it cools it down very quickly.

    Now, I'm assuming there is a vent above the keyboard? However, I don't feel any air coming out (although this is the area where it gets extra hot). All the air seems to come out of the sides.

    Anyways, I know I'm blabbing, but is there a front vent on the these laptops so you can't close your lid while normal operations? I checked task manager and nothing is running the CPU when I close the lid. Is sleep mode when closing the lid mandatory (I almost seems like it does it already since it makes me sign in again when opening the lid).

    This happens on any mode (even silent). Thanks.

    So I just realized it gets extremely hot when the laptop goes idle, even if the lid is open, up to 70C. As soon as I unidle it the fans start roaring and it cools down back to 50C.

    Any ideas?

    You could check to see if you are in a silent or performance mode either in Windows or through ASUS tools. It could be trying to keep the fans silent which would allow temps to rise.

    I was going to try to just format it, it's a brand new laptop.

    I keep it on silent but why would just letting it idle make the temps start screaming upward? I'm going to test it with the screen on constantly and leave it idle and see what happens.

    It seems to happen when the screen turns off and it logs me out of windows, each time I've had to sign back in when unidling.. Thats when the thing gets super hot.

    If the fans are off then it would get hot even if there's very little heat generation.
