You can set Prime95 to run, say, 70% of the time if the temperature is causing the laptop to crash. (Running 70% of the time causes it to pause for about 1 second every 3 seconds) To do so:
1) Exit (Test -> Exit, not just minimize it!) Prime95
2) Open prime.txt (or prime.ini, depending on which version you are using) , it should be in the folder where Prime95 is.
3) Add this line:
Throttle=70
(or however much of the time you want Prime95 to run.)
4) Save, then start prime95. It will now run 70% of the time.
(70% throttle may not be the best, experiment with different throttles and see what you get. Be warned that with TOO low throttle, you may be better off just doing TF or ECM)
