I am downloading a program that is taking about 8 hours, will my toshiba windows 7 overheat and die on me? Also, do I have to continuously stand by my pc? Please help, as I am doing this now. Thank you.

No, it will not.

When you are not doing anything stressing on the processor (rendering, gaming, etc.) the processor goes into an idle state which runs much cooler and uses less energy.

Definitely not. You should be able to leave a computer on 24/7 at full load. While occasionally laptops tend to have heat issue it will just idle while downloading, so no worries at all

You will be just fine, and if anything goes wrong it will just shutdown....if you are that worry get the core temp and set the overheat protection....but its ok don't be that worried...

Thank you and you are all right on! Only problem was, was my daughter stayed on so it wouldn't shut down, she was up till 5am. Got what she wanted but the next day her xbox fan gave out, so it says on the tv. She can get into netflix but it won't allow her to play any games. She tried to modify a game, took it apart, downloaded and now it says the fan is out. Any suggestions for that? Before, I go out and buy a new one on Tuesday. You are all so great wow, wonderful responses.
