moderated Ventalation suggestions, was RE: JAWS getting sluggish/cutting out?

When I bought my laptop, I tried one of those fans that you sit the laptop on that provides plenty of circulation but it was too thick to use on my keyboard shelf.
So, I created my own stand.
I took 24 pennies, 6 per stack, and used Duct Tape to create four little legs and taped them to the laptop right next to the little bumps that supposedly serve as legs on a laptop.
My computer has never gotten too warm since.
If I use it on my lap, which I almost never do, I use a board to sit it on.

When you use the laptop, is the computer resting on a hard surface, such as a table, without a soft cloth or material, between the laptop and the table?
It is very important to ensure that the ventilation slotson the underside of the computer are not partially blocked or totally blocked.
When I use my laptop on my lap, I have a piece of laminated wood which was cut in such a way that when the laptop is resting on the piece of wood, there is about 3 inches of wood jutting out on either side of the laptop and 2 inches, jut out at the front and the back. The piece of wood, is between half and 3 quarters of an inch thick.
