According to Wikipedia "heat build-up in notebooks is reduced by 15 to 20 percent, when a laptop is situated at an angle compared to a laptop in a horizontal position". http://en.wikipediadotorg/wiki/Laptop_cooler

"I personally have a little book that I rest it on right at the back.

It does make it cooler as it allows for better airflow - however, it was far from critical/dangerous in the first place.

I personally do this because it is easier to type when the keyboard is at angle."

I have a couple of laptops that run very warm. I generally do this and it does seem to reduce the time and amount that the fans run. However whenever possible I use active cooling because I found several really cheap usb coolers on Ebay, shipped for $10-$12. For this price I get a laptop that when I turn it off is actually cool to the touch, and this isn't just around the fan but the whole case and battery is cool.
