The Clockwork Man Demo - system shutdown
Since I don't have any Linux games in my library at the moment, I've been testing some demos. One of them is The Clockwork Man, and I'm having some issues with it. The title bar still appears even in fullscreen mode, and I cannot access Steam Community with Shift+Tab. But most important is that the game slows down after some time, and my computer shuts down. I don't know if it's a system error or if it makes it overheat.

Hello Amon + a happy new year!
The Clockwork Man games don't use the Steam overlay. The games are not very hard on resources, perhaps you can try the following:

TCM 1+2 currently rely on the wmctrl library for fullscreen support. We are working on an update to the fullscreen issues that will cut the dependency on wmctrl.

You can install wmctrl by running: sudo apt-get install wmctrl

If you have some time, could you try this and let me know if it solves the issues?
