No stand, although when it gets hot I usually take a break or move to a desk/table.

Welcome to the forum! :-)
I'ved used a stand with mine but only rarely. The stand is really a laptop cooler. The one I use is flat like a tray with round edges (Targus PA248U1 as an example) & I use it either in my lap or on a table. If I get really desperate or extreme for cooling (like I do with my Pentium 4 + Pentium M laptops), then I use it with another laptop cooler (something like a LapCool 5) that has a slight incline, which allows for more circulation/airflow. To really keep my lap cool, I would then use the computer in front of a fan, but there's a risk of dust getting where you don't want it, so you have to be careful!
I really don't like to incline laptops, though. I've had my fair share of non-SSD laptop hard drives failing because of it, even with next-to-perfect care & handling. I don't know whether this problem exists with SSDs, but I would skip the incline + unnecessary vibration under the laptop, just to be on the safe side.
Another option you have if you really wanted something for the heat is something like what's here: Amazon.com: ThermaPAK Laptop Cooling HeatShift Pad 15.4 inch: Electronics. I've never used one, though, so I wouldn't be able to tell you about how well it works. Maybe someone else on here has used one.
