Hot Weather Advice for Computer Owners

Hot weather doesn’t agree with computers. My Mac didn’t want to work for me, so I did the following.


1. I pressed the On/Off switch to turn it off;. 

2. I set a kitchen timer for an hour.

3. I looked at what peripherals I kept plugged into it. 

4. I unplugged the unneeded peripherals from the USB ports.

5. I made sure to plug in a wired keyboard and mouse/trackball.

6. I turned on the Mac again after the timer went off. This time it worked. It just needed a nap. 


So if it’s over 100 degrees where you live and your computer stopped working, just do what I did above. 

Make sure your computer and peripherals stay in a relatively cool place. Not in direct sunshine.
