Suppose that the laptop of Prob. 2.16 is placed in an insulating briefcase with a fully charged battery

Question:

Suppose that the laptop of Prob. 2.16 is placed in an insulating briefcase with a fully charged battery, but it does not go into “sleep” mode, and the battery discharges as if the laptop were in use. If no heat leaves the briefcase, the heat capacity of the briefcase itself is negligible, and the laptop has a mass of 2.3 kg and an average specific heat of 0.8 kJ·kg−1·°C−1, estimate the temperature of the laptop after the battery has fully discharged.
