Dell XPS overheats while sleeping

When I first purchased my laptop (XPS 15 7590) it would overheat while in sleep mode. It seemed to stop doing this after a while, but after a recent update it has since starting overheating again, becoming extremely hot to the touch and a fire hazard. There seem to be plenty of posts about this problem what is Dell doing to fix the issue?

Appears to be an issue with the fingerprint scanner - this solution worked for me and now it is not overheating on sleep. Hope it can be of use to people.

AS far as I am aware dell may release a BIOS update

Until than set the hibernation time to 20 minutes

These machine have fast NVME SSDs and they wake fast any ways

also Disable Connected Network standby

Unfortunately, the only "fix" or workaround that I know of is to disable Sleep and use Hibernate instead...
