While in boot camp playing starcraft 2. The macbook pro will suddenly shut off or go to sleep.


My only guess is the computer is running some kind of overheat protection measures.


Other than that I have no clues...


I hope you can help me fix this problem.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6), Unibody, 2.8 Ghz

MBP 2.8ghz Unibody, Mac OS X (10.6.3)

    Most likely did, perhaps you need to perform a hardware check



    Don't block the machine or use it on a blanket or bed that traps heat, the bottom must let air get underneath.



    Did you install Windows in Boocamp correctly?


    I remmeber there was hardware drivers to be installed did you do that?







    asking to be moved to Bootcamp forum, so look there.

    Look for some other similar threads from today on MacBook Pro and heat, fans, monitoring, using newer drivers.


    Macs run hotter, they don't get the benefit on thermal fan control and it can be a serious issue, as if a MacBook Pro needed to run warmer than they already do.

    Try typing any combination of the words heat, macbook pro, ect, ect... in the search bar that says "search communities".
