My 3 month old MBP's fan started running constantly a couple days ago, even when I close the lid. My usage is about 90% internet - no CPU intensive games or really anything else. 

 

This happened about the same time my two small children were trying to play with the computer - they had gotten into the Guest account and somehow the computer was locked, so I did a hard power off. Since then (roughly) this fan problem has been present.

 

I can't find any software settings that would cause the fan to run constantly. Any suggestions? The machine is running very smoothly overall, and has been a bit cooler on my lap (as one would expect I suppose). But it's annoyingly loud and I'm worried the fan will die from overuse.

 

Any suggestions?
