Would you be willing to do a CaptureData to send to the engineers? If so, my e-mail is in my bio. Just send me an e-mail and I'll send it along. An extra CaptureData not from my work would probably be beneficial to the engineers. It'd be more widespread that way.
I'll keep everyone posted as to what I hear from Apple, but in the meantime, lets keep this thread at least, and maybe my other one too, active to draw attention to this issue.
I have Appigo Sync installed and suspected that this may be at the centre of the system freezes and the extrenal Time Machine USB drive at the fan issues. Ran the laptop all day Sunday from about 11h00 (after the last freeze) till now 08h00 Monday and no more freezes with Appigo Sync turned off and the USB drive unplugged - fan speeds now also normal. So it seems to me that these two factors are likely to be involved in my issues. Will see tonight when I use the USB time machine drive again when back from work.
so today, while importing a CD, my CPU temp rose up to 85º :/ that seemed really too much to me
but obviously i didn't have a CPU usage that high it would explain the temperature.
so yeah big ??? on what is going on with SL... is that why it's so cheep seriously, i guess
when these issues are solved in a 10.6.5 release (maybe).. prices for a retail DVD will be back to "normal" again...
PRAM reset won't solve this issue.. that's for sure..
wonder if you guys are running the 64bit kernel extensions or not..
i am not... so when ever i am using a 64bit app like safari (is iTunes too?)
i have tons of "unknown error" messages in the log files.. CPU runs hot
but isn't used up to a 90% like some of you guys are describing.. in fact
CPU usage doesn't seem at all especially high...
85º today while a usage of 20 - 25 % what is definitely strange..
Just FYI it doesn't seem to be just the MBP. I have a 3.06Ghz iMac that is doing the exact same thing. Fans have been up and down since install, usually around 5500 rpm. Sounds like an airplane in my office. Activity Monitor is showing absolutely nothing at all running. Highest CPU use is AM itself.
My Macbook Pro 2.33 seems to be running hotter since installing Snow Leopard as well. Like a few others I noticed the FONTWORKER process that hogs about 98% of one of the cores for about 10-12 minutes each time you start up, or even wake from sleep. On the MacRumors forum it has a little bit of info - apparently this process registers and validates fonts but why does it have to do it every time the computer wakes from sleep? That's just annoying and pointless. Can others check that process to see if it's happening with all installations of Snow Leopard?
Also my external monitor (Formac DVI) is giving me problems since snow leopard - if I start up and close the lid the external monitor goes black with thin grey lines. I have to keep the lid of the laptop open until start up is complete and the desktop appears on both monitors, then close the lid, let the comp go to sleep then wake with my bluetooth keyboard that's very annoying as well.
What are the chances these issues will be fixed soon?? I may go back to Leopard for a bit.....
one off topic question:
anybody knows where the f... i can switch on firewall logging?
and... in system preferences i have stealth mode switched on
but in the system profiler under firewall it says:
Firewall Logging: No
Stealth Mode: No
so what's the deal with that?
kaosdroid, under the security preferences pane, there should be a tab for firewall, which you probably found. There should be an advanced button for the firewall which will take you into other options that you can turn on like logging and stealth mode.
For those of you with fan issues, please try resetting the SMC of your units before saying it's the same problem. It seems as though an SMC reset is fixing a lot of people's issues. We don't want to link issues together that are not actually the same. Mine, and some others, however, are experiencing very warm temperatures regardless.
