    Unplug them or remove their battery.

    You've got 4 very generic questions with very little detail.
    Power consumption, over-heating, robots, and maintenance.

    Electronic devices are all different. They share a great deal, but none of these questions can be properly answered without more details on *your* side. What device in particular, what are you seeing happen?


    Power consumption of a device depends on it's design and it's 'load' . You running a computer that is constantly working away on protein folding? It's very CPU intensive. The design of the components will dictate the consumption efficiency. The task you are running on the computer is the 'load' and will make the machine work much harder increasing power consumption. This is the same this as running a vacuum cleaner through thick carpet. To reduce consumption, simply buy more efficient electronics, or change your usage habits to use them less.

    Over-heating is dependant on design and environment. If you put your cell-phone is a new snazzy silicone case and start playing video games on it the heat will build up quite quickly... you have *insulated* the device making the heat more difficult to dissipate. To reduce over-heating you need to improve the rate at which is can dissipate heat, or simply generate less heat. Take off the silly case, and don't run hot electronics inside of cabinets or other small enclosures that dont let them breath. If it still over-heats or gets too warm, use it less or buy a more efficient device.

    I don't even know where to start on this one... Try asking a different way. There are kids robots, industrial robots, bipedal, aerial, wheeled, unmanned, piloted, automated........

    Reduce the heat. Warm / Hot electronics don't last long.
    Treat them nicely. Toggling electronics on/off in quick succession is not good for it, and neither is stressing them... did you buy an Air-conditioner meant for 600 sq Ft when you have a 1000 sq Ft home? The device will over-work itself and it's life will be considerably less.
    Keep them dry.

    Reduce the current or the voltage.
