Computer overheating? Only when unplugged
I have a mid 2012 retina 15 MacBook Pro. I have a program that I use to test the computer that will let me know the FPS and the GPU heat. It seems if the computer is unplugged from a power source and goes past 80 C it will go black and a few seconds later the fans will stop spinning (shutting down). When I hit the power button it acts as if it is dead and shows a "plug device in" sign. Once I plug the computer in it will fireback up within 10 seconds and continue where it left off on the program. However if I run the same test for 20+ minutes with the power adapter connected it never shuts down.
Not really sure that this is normal and would like you know the community's thought on this issue I have experiencing.
Here are the results from coconutbattery. I checked the battery but it seems to be "normal". As for my current energy saver settings I have the battery power set at 2 minutes for display sleep and 10 minutes for computer sleep. Even if the display was to go to sleep I do not think I would be seeing a sign showing "plug in battery".
Thanks again guys, let me know!
Is this a good question?
