    The cooling system is for the hot stepper motor, inside case now the temperature is more less.

    Looks like it's built to last though, not like a lot of computers out there.
    Or castles for that matter.

    Those things do get stupid hot, mostly because the coils are on the outside against the walls of the motor casing, instead of inside, with the magnets on the outside.
    Why not power down the stepper coils when it's not in use? maybe use a microcontroller to put the driver into sleep mode if the motor's not used for a couple of minutes.

    The function Release() should release the current to the stepper coils when the stepper's not being used.
    I found this forum thread on the Adafruit site. Hope it's what you need?
