Machine was plugged in.

The computer was cleaned while still plugged in, but powered off. I was working on an iMac flat panel 15 inch - the cute half sphere machine now discontinued. The vents are along the bottom rim and the exhaust is on the top. The iMac has a heat pipe extending from the CPU to the edge, according to photo's of the innards I've seen. I suspect that removal of dust from that spot was important in the improvement on my machine.
