XMR would be something for you but i am afraid you will burn your Notebooks, so beware . Notebooks ARE NOT MADE FOR MINING. Angry

Haha - I'm stuck in this very same situation. First world problems and such, though; I'm spending a little over a month overseas and decided to leave my GPU mining rig cranking along the whole time.

Configured everything hardware and software wise to push no more than 62c (on a warm day) - and had back ups of back ups of fan curves/miner restarts - you get the point. Was wonderful for the first week - then (I assume) the system just hung, hadn't blue screened or automatically rebooted - maybe my house is on fire. Who knows.

So - now stuck with a lower-mid range laptop that I'm always experimenting with different miners/algorithims/hardware config side of stuff, but at the end of the day you an only really pull off -at best- a 'supplementary miner' status IF you're running a newer model laptop that's specificially been designed to work under heavy CPU/GPU load - and even then - a spoon is still a spoon.. dunno if that's even a reference.

Long story short - I run four pretty damn cheap Windows VPS' which each contain 4 vCores  that fluctuate massively - some providers are HUGELY better than others. I just have them working away all day, and ~$13 USD is the most costly of the four I use for mining purposes, then just run my laptop for 4-5 hours a day, I generate enough to put through to fanobet - then take a chance on their simple roulette feature.

^ that's how I justify it - keeps it interesting always pushing for the smallest increments, too, heh.

Grab ThrottleStop (Windows Software) - if you haven't already - you can knock the temperature issue on the head if your CPU/Chipset is willing to let you do so.
