My Win11 laptop fan has been running full time now for at least a couple of weeks, and I narrowed it down to chromium: it goes full on when I start either Chrome, Edge or Obsidian.
I’m hoping someone else has or had the same issue and fixed it. I’ve googled and there are many reports of this but back 2 years - nothing recent.
It’s a pain because while I don’t need to keep Chome on all the time, I do need to keep Obsidian open all the time (3 different notebooks).
- I updated Chrome yesterday to it’s latest (“Chrome is up to date
Version 112.0.5615.50 (Official Build) (64-bit)”)
- I just updated Obsidian today to the latest (I’m assuming the chromium engine was updated as well)
- I’m up to date with my Windows updates.
I keep the taskbar clean, I don’t run too many apps, and in any event I’m not doing anything different from the past 2 years when my fan was fine.
