When a computer overheats, it freezes. Does this mean that computers violate the 2nd principle of thermodynamics? (self.shittyaskscience)

Obviously, this is a glitch. Does anyone know how to exploit this to obtain free energy or unlimited lives?

When your computer overheats, why does it freeze?

When the cpu gets too hot, in newer computers the cpu clock speed is slowed down or stopped. It causes freezing. Older computers just get too much errors on running and due to that they halt.
