Perhaps not quite as high but I think it will still get high enough to
cause the LCD damage. I often discharge batteries by leaving a bank of
machines at OFW running watch-battery. Once I was using a bank of XO-1s
and tried to save floor space by leaving the laptops closed and placing
them up against the wall. The not exactly like they would be in a rack
but very similar. When I returned the laptops in the middle were very
hot. So hot I almost could not handle them.
