Question about Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8828 Notebook PC
Yes you can set to cool temperature instead of high performance to reduce heat. It depends on the operating system what the steps will be. Some options may be there in the BIOS to reduce the clock rate of your CPU. I will suggest to put your laptop on a hard surface instead of your bed, fabric or somewhere heat can gather and make sure there are enough space on the bottom to make sure air flow into the laptop. If there are feets on the bottom which can be folded then stand it up so there are more space for the air to flow into the bottom of the laptop. It might be a good idea to check the fans and vents and see whether there is a lot of dust on it. Blow them out maybe a little bit hard because you may need to unassemble the laptop and get to the interior. To use a static-free vacuum may help to clean the dust on the vents from outside. There are some software you can use to cool your laptop also such as speed step, and cool and quite which I found on somebody's post.
Yeah it is a good idea to tune down the performance and resolution of video processing programs. Sometimes you can open task manager and see what are the most processer comsuming processes. Some of them may be from some background third party application and not necessary so you can disable them from your startup options.
