    Default ac adapter too hot

    I use my laptop on the bed most of the time, and the "brick" on the ac adapter gets really really hot. Is there some sort of device in existance that maybe wraps around it or something to keep it cooler? I'm afraid it might start a fire! One time, the computer switched itself to battery power, I think because the ac adapter was overheated, because as soon as it cooled down it worked again. Any ideas??? Thanx!

    Check the Dell web site. Dell recalled a bunch of AC adapters because of a fire hazard.

    I got a new adapter for my Dell Inspiron 2500 about 6 months ago.

    I would quit using it the bed !
