... 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.
MODEL: MacBook Pro 13"
CPU: 2.53 GHz
RAM: 4 GB
DRIVE: 250 GB
CLEAN INSTALL OR UPGRADE: UPGRADE
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 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,
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 http://twitpic.com/fxwcn
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)
