    Tonight I invited friends over to watch the final of a sporting event, My plan was to watch live and share the screen on my large TV like I have been doing for the last few weeks.
    My friends arrived and I went to set up screen sharing, but it failed for the very first time, everything I tried failed, it would not work the wireless display adapter and phone would not pair.
    To add to the embarrassment I had to switch off my phone and that failed too, yes the phone would not switch off, Goodbye was displayed for over ten mins until I forced the reset with volume down and power key pressed, 20 mins had now elapsed and my mates were mocking the phone etc, To end on a positive its now working and my guests are impressed, I just can't believe this happened the 1 time I needed it to work.
    An observation, fast charging and continuum use makes for a red hot phone, I mean extremely warm, hottest I have ever felt the phone, now I have stopped charging and the heat has reduced considerably much like my red face

    Sounds like Windows 10 Mobile to me! I'm sorry it happened though, must have been mortifying, having stuff like that fail in the limelight.

    I'd strongly advise you to never Quick Charge when using Continuum. Use a charger that can supply 500mA (max 750mA) to avoid potential damage to internal parts from overheating.
    I use an old Nokia 600mA charger with THIS "USB micro to USB C" adapter

    You noticed the heat to @KefKef ?, yes I wont be fast charging with Continuum again, I also noticed you can get about 2 hours use from Continuum Mode, streaming from youtube to the big screen, with the phone screen OFF.

    Always do a test run. Don't just wing it.

    You can download blackout for continuum. This will turn the phone off while using continuum. This feature will come with the red stone 2 update

    I enjoyed a similar embarrassment with bluetooth in the car. I seem to be one of the rare lucky ones with this bug, but sometimes the phone will 'half connect' to bluetooth. The car sees the phone, but not vice versa. Toggling bluetooth will fail, and shut down will leave the phone stuck on 'Goodbye'. Only a hard reboot fixes it. Of course this happens mostly when there's a passenger in the car. Sigh.

    I use blackout as standard and I don't just wing it, it had been working fine for weeks. First problem I have had with Continuum.

    Yes. In Continuum the processor itself heats the whole phone quite a lot, add to that the heat from quick charged battery and you get into a potentially hazardous situation. I have THIS VoltCraft IR thermometer to check the temperature, and can tell you that they can easily go over safe values.

    Thanks for your input, very valuable information. Potentially very important.

    In new insider builds. But you can get an app called "blackout for continuum". It essentially displays a black image which makes the amoled screen turn off due to how it works. To close the app you just double tap as if you were turning your screen on with double tap to wake.
