Previously I made a post stating that the new Gears 5 is making my laptop shutdown/sleep, it appears it is windows store games in general.

I tried 3 windows store games, Gears 5, Forza 4 and Crackdown 3 and the same exact problem occured for each game, high core temps (85C +) resulting in my laptop entering sleep/shutting down.

I then tried 3 steam games, Skyrim, Hitman: Absolution and Street fighter x Tekken, and there were no issues and core temps were at most about 55C.

Could anyone help me or has had a similar problem? I've never really used the windows store before up until recently so I am led to believe it is causing the issue and the subsequent overheating. It could also be that the windows games are more intensive on the CPU, but i'm not entirely sure about that.
