Don’t let your laptop overheat in your backpack!

If your laptop wakes from standby inside your bag or backpack, it will likely overheat and possibly self destruct. Even if it survives, this takes life away from your hard drive and motherboard by getting so hot!

It cannot ventilate when running inside a laptop carrying case.

Laptop overheating causes:

Cause 1: USB mouse with nano receiver plugged in, when you get anywhere near the laptop, like putting it in your pack and lifting it from your desk to go out, it already is coming out of standby if your mouse isn’t completely disabled.

There’s a bug in windows settings that still allows the mouse to wake up the computer out of standby even if you have it set to not allow the device to wake up the computer.

Read this to make fix the USB mouse still bringing the laptop out of standby.

Cause 2: Plugged intake vent on the bottom, if you lay your laptop on a blanket or on your lap, make sure you know where your intake vent is and be mindful to keep it open to breathe air. Usually the exhaust is on the side or the back and is harder to block, plus you’ll feel a hot spot if you do plug it.

Nikola Tesla museum is a go!

For a man who had many more inventions than patents, over 276 documented patents are in his name!

Tesla invented the AC motor and had something more than 10 variations patented within the first couple years. They are still in use today as many of our most efficient motors, like the shaded pole induction motor.

Nikola Tesla’s name is on 13 of the 19 patents on the generators which first harnessed hydroelectric power at Niagra Falls, which he saw a postcard of when he was a kid in what’s now Croatia.

The power grid in the US is just as he invented it over 100 years ago, 60 Hz AC transformer boosted. He also suggested 50 Hz in Europe because of less transmission line distance, which is what it is to this day.

He outdid all of that with the pinnacle of technology at his super lab in Long Island New York called Wardenclyff. The wireless transmission tower reached 185 feet in the air and the facility below the laboratory had super duper grounding for that tower, which still reaches 120 feet into the ground.

That facility was shut down, then the tower was dynamited during the war, but the lab and the incredible below foundation connections are still there! This is finally coming back into the fold thanks to  Tesla lovers and disciples from all over the world.

We have matched and exceeded our contribution to buy the facility back and are now working on restoration money. You too can donate and become part of this historic turnaround to the positive direction!
