Hello dear ASUS engineers, and knowledgeable forum users,

Is there any way to keep the fan running, while the screen of the phone is off?

I couldn't find any way to keep the fan running while the screen of the phone is off. If you wonder why the #ūçk you need the fun running with the screen off, the reason is very simple — I don't use the phone for gaming (only), but also as a fairly powerful desktop computer. Believe it or not, the ROG Phone is outperforming my old desktop computer in rendering of CAD photorealistic 3-D images. The combination ROG Phone + Docking station equals a very nice desktop computer. (Especially in X-mode.)

The only problem is that I don't need the screen while rendering the image, but the fan is running only when the screen is on. And the phone is getting really hot under 111% load. It definitely needs the fan to keep the temperatures from going wild, hot is not good neither for the battery, nor the CPU/GPU. The following is a screenshot with the fan set on maximum speed:

Please, consider adding the option to keep the fan running regardless of the screen status - On or Off.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Best regards.

The following rendered images, and many more like them, were rendered under 3 hours time each! I love the ROG Phone!
