    not even when I leave my computer idling over night... I wake up in the morning and the fans are on full and the temperature is over 75C...

    And now I'm running SETI@home...

    you know it's a bad thing when your comp doesn't meet fire code.

    check your activity monitor for some program that is chewing up your processor, i'm sure onyx will clean it up

    otherwise, it might be a hardware issue. did it always do this?

    If you bother Apple about it enough, you can probably trade it in for a C2D version.*


    *If you're covered under warranty, and probably only if you have Applecare.

    even 50 seems a bit high....maybe it's just cause it's a notebook and doesn't have a 15lb heatsink on it....

    Does yours whine?

    Mine Whines a lot, so I have to run a program to stop it, so my CPU is never fully idling.

    Yea, you probably got a late-gen C1D. Mine is a Week 8, IIRC, back when it had tons of problems.
