My early 2009 MBP will run hot when I use facetime on my computer.  After a certain period of time, the built-in microphone will automatically shut down and the recipient on the other end can no longer hear me. 

 

Is this normal for certain hardware pieces to start shutting down when the cpu reaches a certain temperature?  Or am I missing something that could potentially be wrong with my MPB that it should not be heating up this much?

 

Thank you
