    I had one left over from a botched uninstall of Carbonite that was running ever few seconds or so. I removed it and Apple wants a status update tonight. I'm going to see if that took care of it. Maybe/hopefully?

    ... And it did not fix the issue. There's about a 10 degree increase in temps respectively for doing anything in SL vs L. I just heard back again from Apple Engineering because the Carbonite thing did not fix my issue. They're investigating further. =) I'll keep you guys posted. However, in the meantime, I encourage you all to call Apple so they start seeing some more complaints.

    I noticed my laptop getting hotter and while checking the Activity Monitor saw that Safari Flash Plugin
    was taking most of the CPU.

    I am so relieved to hear I am not the only one. I noticed right away that my computer was 10 degrees warmer. My average internal temp is 106F for basic web surfing and 97F when CPU is 98% idle. Strange.

    I tried everything but I had to remove Sophos Antivirus (as it is described here, then my fan was running normal.

    i don't think this is just limited to the portables.. my unibody 13" macbook pro is fine but my imac 24" 2.8 early 2008 has fans that have been on @ 5000rpm optical /5500 rpm hard drive for the last 15 minutes now with CPU usage at < 10% ....

    yep, i reset my SMC. it happens on my imac and not my macbook pro. i just ripped a cd and by the end of the CD the fan speeds were pushing 5000 RPM... sounds like my imac is about to take off. lol.

    I have the same issue with stealth mode and system profiler. I have done a scan and all my ports were stealthed. It seems that system profiler is not picking up the correct information. I posted this in another thread and at least one other person has the same problem.

    I have the same problem... install 2 times a clean copy and 1 time a upgrade and every time i have serius problems with heat of the machine...
    Gpu *70 degree*
    gpu diode *80 degree*
    gpu heatsink 78
    this temperature are without aplications.
    with leopard and clean instalation i have this situation:
    gpu *50 degree*
    gpu diode *52 degree*
    gpu hestsink *49 degree*
    I reinstall my copy of leopard and upgrade to 10.5.8

    I don´t know what is the solution...

    I have 5 macs, and some of them are the same models as people are complaining about in this thread. All are running Snow Leopard. Not one of mine are getting hot, nor are they running their fans any more than usual, very little, in other words.

    I have many clients with Macs, on Snow Leopard, and none have complained, nor have I noticed anything like your mentioning.

    I can see it isn't a wide spread problem since there are so few with this issue, only 69 have responded, and not all are having the problem.

    You need to open up the Activity Monitor, or Top from Terminal, and see what, if anything, is using CPU/Memory that would cause the Machines to overheat. The majority of these folks will likely all have a common dominator, of similar ilk. Could be hardware, or software - most likely third party software.

    Good Luck - Cheers,

    I was affected by this, but the SMC reset seems to have fixed it.

    So I have a unibody MBP and a previous model MBP.

    I installed Snow Leopard on both.

    So far my unibody is running OK. The other computer heats up fast and then freezes. When the computer freezes, the display shows random graphics. See

    It's a problem with the optical drive fan and the hard drive fan.

    my CPU fan stays cool (1200 RPMs)
    but the other two fans [optical drive (5000 RPMs) and hard drive (5500 RPMs)] are running hard... it's weird because i don't have anything in the optical drive. again, when i was running leopard, the fans would rarely be noticeable (only once in a while), but these two fans are going nuts (even though the things they're supposed to cool down aren't even that taxed)
