I have a 2004 i7 15" Macbook Pro, when I startup iPhoto 11 (version 9.4.3) the fan spins really fast and I can hear it clearly. Also, the MBP will heat up and then reboot itself.


So I just bought a 2013 i7 13" Macbook Air, same problem, the fan spins loudly and then MBA heats up.


Can anyone help?


Thx and cheers,

MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    That's what happens when an pp hangs or is in someother way distressed. Have you the same library on both machines?


    As a Test:


    Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'


    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?


    Post back with the result.
