      Subject: Fw: warn your kids about using a laptop in bed

            Please take time to read!!!! Very important!!!! Tell your           
            sons/daughters about it.                                           
            A well known family in Mequon lost their 25 year-old son (Arun Gopal
            Ratnam) in a fire at home June 4th.                                 
            This is what happened.  He graduated with MBA from University of   
            Wisconsin-Madison two weeks earlier and came home. Had a lunch with 
            his dad at home and decided to go back to clean up his room at     
            school. Father told him to wait and see his mother before he goes   
            back for a few days.                                               
            He decided to take a nap while waiting for his mom to come home from
            work. Neighbors called 911 when they saw black smoke coming out of 
            the house. Their 25 year-old son Arun died in the three-year old   
            house. It took several days of investigation to find out the cause 
            of the fire.                                                       
            It was determined that the fire was caused by lap top in the bed.   
            When the lap top is on the bed cooling fan does not get air to cool 
            the computer and that is what caused the fire.                     
            Uneven surface of the bedsheet has blocked the air intake vent below
            the cpu fan. When the laptop is placed on a flat surface i.e., on   
            desk/table, there is a gap between the desk surface and the base of 
            the casing to allow air to flow/suck in through the air intake vent 
            by the cpu fan to cool the cpu. This paragraph is added in by sender
            for better understanding of the senerio.                           
            He did not even wake up to get out of the bed he died of carbon     
            monoxide (CO).                                                     
            The reason I'm writing this to all of you is that I have seen all of
            us using our lap top in bed. Let us all decide and make it a       
            practice not to do that. Risk is real. Let us make it a rule not to 
            use lap top in bed or put computer on bed with blankets and pillows
