MNT Pocket Reform runs quite hot with closed lid

Hi, I forgot to shut down the device, closed the lid and put it in my bag. About an hour later when I took it out, the device was almost too hot to touch. Is there a way to prevent this e.g. by shutting down on closing the lid?


I have never seen any reference to the pocket having any LID detection mechanism, and I just opened its manual and there is no reference to “LID” (did a text search and found nothing).

I’m just guessing, but I would say there is no close/open lid sensor on the Pocket. The manual has the schematics included so probably it would exist a reference in there if that sensor existed.

The reform doesn’t have any way to detect a closed lid, so I assume the pocket is the same. Some people were considering adding something with a reed switch
