I am using a 2011 15" MBP with the new TB Display. Clamshell mode works well and it's what I ultimatelly wanted,...but the MBP is getting VERY hot and the fan is spinning at maximum capacity.


I realize that the fan is doing it's job, but the LCD on the MBP is very warm. This cant be good for the longevity of the MBP.


Is anyone using Clamshell Mode? Any suggestions? Thx.
