I've red this: Does overheating cause a computer to slow down? and found out that processors normally reduce their clock speed to cool themselves. I have just converted a movie from .avi to .mp4(for psp). While it was converting the laptop is still running in perfect shape without lagging or some slow downs. Because only the browser and total video converter was open. The conversion was done, and I shut the computer down. I turn it on again after 6 hours. And it got slow. Is it normal? Maybe, after 1-3 days without using, thats the only time that its usable again. The hdd temp back then was 113 F. I don't know the heat released by the processor, but it is certainly hot.But the fan was still not spinning to its fullest. Whose fault is the slow down, the processor, or the hard disk.
