nvme drive disappears after about an hour of uptime

Thanks for sharing this insight! I got my PBP 4 days ago. The first thing I did was install an Intel SSD 660p Series 512GB nvme drive. I have been getting it configured and it's been going well. Today I was compiling pypy from source which is very RAM and CPU intensive, and the laptop froze. When I rebooted I encountered the same login prompt issue you did, and a root recovery shell showed that /dev/mmcblock2 was nowhere to be found.

After powering it off and letting it cool off, it it now boots fine. So I think your theory is true. I can't be certain if the overheating detection that disables the SSD is on the PBP's board or on the SSD itself, my guess would be the latter.

I'm going to purchase some silicon thermal pads to place inside the chassis to distribute heat. I think those will also help tighten up the keyboard/trackpad button action, which is a little bouncy for my taste due to the faceplate being plastic and the empty space underneath.
