    My Cf-19Mk5 runs 75c most of the time, it kicks up to 99c if you run it hard. I just looked at it as my daughter is using it. 77c on Windows 10.

    Mine was almost cold all the time except working under direct sun or stressing CPU.
    I would like to get less power consumption, heat and also my PCMCIA LAN just died. I think the reason was heat also.
    Seems a problem is CPU almost always in C1 c-state.

    We don't want to be haters, but M$ tries really hard to make us.
    I tried remote desktop - connecting from a Windows 11 laptop to a Windows 10 laptop (my main PC). Of course Win 11 couldn't find my Win 10 on the network (same wifi, same room), so I put the IP address instead. No problem - connected, put in username and password (local account), and Bob's your uncle. Easy.
    Then I rebooted the Win 11 laptop and tried again. Screen opened for a fraction of a second, then vanished. Tried this several times.
    Spent hours searching for a solution - someone suggested to change the resolution.
    Then I noticed that instead of a local account, remote desktop app was trying to connect using Microsoft account/<username> instead of just <username>. Fiddled around with that a few times, entering fresh credentials. Still no luck.
    So I gave up and went to my Win 10 laptop (my main PC - that I use for work).
    Couldn't log in. Each attempt would send me back to the login screen immediately. Fingerprint, password, PIN ... nothing worked. Spent a few more hours searching for a solution to this (far more serious) problem.
    Finally found a suggestion to restart in safe mode. Now which thrice damned low-life thought it was a good idea to put the option to restart in safe mode available after you've logged in? Held down the power button to intentionally crash shutdown the laptop a few times, and finally the safe mode option appeared. That fixed the login issue.
    Whew!

    So, no more remote desktop for me. Installed TightVNC. Worked out of the box. No fuss. Took less than a minute per laptop. Compare that to half a day effing around with remote desktop.

    Always have easy access to old fashion 'F8' Advanced Boot options as 'Safe Mode' & 'Disable driver Signing' on Win10/8.1. It will surely work on the new and flawed touch friendly OS as well.

    Microsoft's engineers think its smart let you crash your pc a several times when there is smarter ways to access Safe mode. Or have to make an boot up disk. They think have access to safe mode is only needed if your pc works as intended:rolleyes: Genius and stupid at same time can often go hand in hand @Mr. Fox

    Not sure if it works on all older Windows 10 versions. But as long the roads lead to Rome (Paradise), then use what'll fits:) A lot faster than crash your Windows several times:D
