The laptop should have gone to sleep. That's what the user expects it to do. If it doesn't do that, then it IS Linux's fault for overheating and staying ON. For ultimately getting busted might be the manufacturer's fault, but staying ON all night, it is Linux's fault. Why can't you accept the truth about the state of ACPI on linux? It's buggy as hell.
