The air intakes are on the bottom cover. If you place it on a bed where the bed covers block the intakes, the system can overheat. I would suggest either a cooling pad or simply a firm surface that the laptop can rest on top of.

I agree with the reply above. Search “lap desk” on Amazon for some tray options that you might like. Some have a beanbag underside so they rest comfortably in your lap.
