Then run multiple iterations of it. For the 1st test you can enable the 2d/3d graphics and disk tests. For the others you will need to disable these as or they will fail - no problem but the tests will failure under the summary. These tests will run 15 clock minutes.DO NOT RUN THESE ON BATTERY POWER as the batteries appear to be unable to support "Full Load" of the system for an extended amount of time.
Exact problem (and I'm not sure it is) is that the system appears to be going into "Overload Protection Mode" as far as heat is concerned and then never gets out of that mode until the temperature is less than 41C. Problem is that it never gets that low and even at startup is over that temperature.
I am using MobMeter to track temperature. Additionally, the blinking (and undocumented) CAP-Locks and Num-Locks indicate "WARNING, WARNING - WILL ROBINSON" type of thing and appears to indicate that the processer is overheating. Now, if the manual had this indication in it and explained what it was, my discomfort factor might be much less.
All things being said, it appears as if my temperatures exceed those of "others". That is central to my concern, as well, as not wanting to burnout a $3k machine in the first couple of weeks or years.
