That's why I asked before I tried it, I have no idea why the person who told me they do this does it.

For one thing, a sighted persohn wouldn't close the lid. That is a hint that laptops aren't designed to operate in that way. How hot a computer gets depends on the computer and I don't know if one can generalize. But wwhy do anything that causes extra heat to build up that might be too much. Also, I don't know what the default action is, but laptops generally are set at the factory to shut down or sleepp or in some way stop or suspend working when the lid is closed. You can change the close the lid setting to do nothing, in which case the computer will still run but again, I think the setting that by default in some way stops operation is a hint that it is not a good idea to let a computer run with the lid down. And why did the person want to do so in the first place? I see no benefit. Just because someone may think its cool to do something because its appealing doesn't mean it is.
