Yoga 940 overheats and shuts itself off when idle!

2021-07-27, 23:54 PM

My two-month old Yoga 940 runs fine when it's active but overheats and shuts itself off when it is idle.  This happens whether it puts itself to sleep or I do it from the power settings.  It is so hot in the morning that I would burn my hand if I touched it for more than a few seconds.  I have updated the BIOS but that made no difference!


I have come to HATE this machine...worst computer purchase decision EVER!

After automatic shutdown, if it can be turned on normally, then this situation belongs to the system's self-protection function; it may also be poor heat dissipation. You can try to clean the notebook fan and radiator.
