Hi...
I use my laptop almost all the time..
On gaming, downloading and movies or series's.....
Is it bad for laptops? Should I give it a rest after a certain amount of time?

A lot of people do that. You really can't control when it will break, using it or more less is hardly a factor. Keep the laptop well ventilated by always placing it on a "hard" wooden surface (non conductive surface). Turning it off and on frequently isn't good as well.The greatest amount of wear 'n' tear on solid state circuitry comes from the heating up and cooling off of the elements (diodes, capacitors, etc). By leaving the device on, you maintain the temp and have less in the way of expansion and rarfaction (the hot/cold cycle) in the circuitry, which is what causes the layers of the diodes, etc. to peel apart or separate from one-another, eventually causing them to wear out.

Thank you havo_k....
I understand it now....
I have another question too...
I live in a hot area... really hot... and playing games heats up my laptop so much... i can't even touch the exteriors of my ventilators.... i don't think there's a solution to that.....

There are cooling pads you can buy for laptops. They usually cost anywhere between $15- $50 I think. Cooler master have good ones.
