Laptop Details:

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2019, Four Thunderbolt 3 ports)

2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7

16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3

 

Even when closed, my fan is running on high and the computer is very hot. Battery usage says photoshop using significant power even though it is closed. Pretty miserable situation considering this is my work laptop and the battery life has plummeted to less than two hours on a full charge.

Try logging into another account (you may need to make one), any difference? 
Try starting up in Safe mode (hold down Shift Key when booting), any difference? 
You might want to try running a free utility like Onyx: better?
