Like many workplaces, some people have a knack for being able to troubleshoot technology. It’s a valuable skill — many of us just don’t have the technological know-how to fix these issues without recruiting someone from the IT department.

This guy was already quite tech savvy, but their computer had an issue with overheating. That can not be fixed with a simple reboot! All the OP needed was a water cooler, but conversations with their boss about it made clear that this was not OP’s issue to solve.
Some workplaces are just like that — no matter what, you have to stay in your lane. The OP, u/ExecutorAxon, at least got everything in writing. They also provided several updates, so scroll to the bottom to check those out.
