Because SL drives it hard.

 

To avoid cooking your laptop, go into the viewer debug settings and set YieldTime to something between 20 to 100. Try lower value first.

 

Also, if the frame rate is high, use Firestorm viewer and limit the display frame rate.

 

It's must likely the first solution.

Your laptop fans may need to be cleaned. Try to avoid using it on any surfaces that could suffocate  it. In other words do not use it on blankets pants or anything that will block the vents.  It's most likely It cant dispate the heat properly.

It might have been set to -1 yes? That just meant "don't yield processor time"

 

Just use positive values, start at 20 and go up in 20's. This will make SL viewer more sluggish the higher you go but if your laptop fans are not obstructed and all else is normal, your choice is either a slightly slower SL or a cooked laptop. Your choice!

Again, for the 3rd time, start at 20 and just go up in 20's.  A 20ms yield may be enough, if it still runs hot, try more and just get to a point where you're happy.  100ms Yeild may be too much but it will run cool.

There's no harm that will occur, it will just be a slower viewer experience the higher the number but the laptop will be cool.  This is assuming that there's no problem with the fans and that this isn't attempting to address the wrong problem.
