Here’s a dumb question that I can’t find anybody talking about. I’ve never owned a Raspberry Pi before, and Volumio is the first and only thing that I’ve run on it for more than a few minutes. It seems like both my Pi and the SanDisk USB stick in the back are quite hot, even when I haven’t been using the device all day. So far, I’ve simply paused music playback and switched over to another source. Do I need to do more than pause playback when I’m done? Should I shut the Pi down?
I understand that my aluminum Flirc case is passively cooling the Pi, so the fact that it gets hot sometimes means its working, but surely it shouldn’t be hot all the time, right?
Volumio Version: Latest standard release (Sorry, I’m at work and can’t look this up)
Hardware: Raspberry Pi 4B, 4 GB RAM, Passively-cooled Flirc case
DAC: Schiit Modi Multibit via USB
