    I am observing an issue since the BIOS/Synapse Update for my Razer Blade 15 Adv 2020, 2070 super maxq (RZ09-0330x)

    Each time the screen times out (15-30 minutes) to save energy etc. the fans RAMP UP
    • I checked for offending apps, and I don't see anything pulling CPU cycles etc.
    • This is the screen timeout to black screen
    • The machine goes from idle fans to what I guess is about 30-50%, it's noticeable and I don't want to leave them running all night like that
    • As a result I have turned off the screen timeout and set the machine to shut off after an hour.
    This is not a great user experience and I wanted to know if anyone else has noticed this.

    The update I performed is Bios Update v1.1.1.2, and my synapse version is: 3.5.730.72314

    Additionally, my laptop gets PRETTY HOT set to Balanced Performance Mode, and the fans stay quieter under gaming than when the screen times out. The area above the keyboard gets BLAZING hot and even the hand rest gets a little uncomfortable (seems like balanced is not quite ramping up fan support enough unless I manually set fan speed and that is not great)

    I haven't seen any posts online that have the same symptoms so I am post to see if others are having the issue or if there is something I should do to remedy, a potentially "Known Issue".

    Additional Troubleshooting:
    • The fans do not spin up if the Razer Blade is unplugged, only when the screen sleeps and the laptop is plugged in.
    • Razer Blade was fully charged
    • Fans Spin down IMMEDIATELY after touching the mouse to wake the screen.

    Additional Troubleshooting:
    • Uninstalled Synapse 3.0 completely and tested the Screen Sleep while plugged in and the problem still exists. (bios update issue?)
    • Nothing plugged in except the power cord
    • Only happens when the screen sleeps (not the computer sleep)
    • Is continuous and pretty loud

    Official Support: Is there harm in re-flashing the bios update? I would like to confirm with you that my bios update was completed with success since Synapse being uninstalled did not solve the issue, and I DO NOT see any run away processes hitting my CPU or GPU during the Screen Sleep.

    Razer Support? It's been a week and I have provided quite a bit of information here to start trouble shooting this. It is concerning that there has not been a response.
