    Warning LAPTOP CAN COST YOU LIFE This is very crucial READ IT ALL A well-known family lost their 25 year old son in a fire at home. This is what happened: He graduated with MBA from University in June. Two weeks later he went home and had lunch with his dad at home. He then decided to go back to clean up his room at school but the father told him to please wait to see his mother before he goes back for a few days. He decided to take a nap while waiting for his mom to come home from work. Neighbours called 911 when they saw a smoke coming out of the house. The 25 year old son died in the three year old house. It took several days of investigation to find out the cause of the fire and thus it was determined that the fire was caused by lap top on the bed. When a lap top is on the bed, the cooling fan does not get air to cool off the Hard drive and that was the actual cause of fire. There is an uneven surface of the bed sheet which blocks the air intake vent below the CPU fan. If a laptop is placed on a flat surface i.e. on desk/table, there is a gap between the desk surface and the base of the casing to allow air to flow/suck in through the air intake vent from the CPU fan to cool of then system. The 25 year old did not even wake up to get out of bed as he died of carbon monoxide (CO). The reason I'm writing this to all of you is that most of us like using our laptops in bed. Let us all decide to make it a practice not to do that because the Risk is real. Let us make it a rule not to use lap top in bed or put computer on bed with blankets and pillows around .
