When i open the lid and check the activity monitor a different process runs at 100% everytime.  After I open the lid the process goes back to normal, the mbp cools down and fans slow down.  It only started happening after few days of use. 

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! 

 

 

Thanks!

    It scared me as well. I closed the lid and put it into the bag. I then picked it out again after half hour cause I forgot to send a file and lucky I did it... It was running like **** and the temperature was so **** hot I could handle it. I am really scare because I'm afraid it can gets on fire so I'm switching it off everytime, intead of just closing the lid-standby. How can we fix it?

    I had it also in the backpack scorching hot.  It was fine the first few days i had the mbp.  The only thing that i recently installed is google chrome canary with retina display.  Did you install it on your mbp?

     

    Thanks!

    Yes but just few hours ago (and the lid problems occured few days ago).

    What about XCode?

  • Lucas879 Level 1 (0 points)

    I had the latest (i'm a developer) but unistalled this afternoon. why?

  • yanz67 Level 1 (0 points)

    This time when openened the mbp xcode was runnign at almost 100% cpu and then after i opened it went to normal.  So maybe its xcode keeping it on but i never had a problem with the old mbp and xcode.  I am going to try to quit xcode and see if this problem persists.

    Are you still having issues with the heating up of your mbp after uninstalling xcode?  I quit xcode before closing the lid and haven't had a problem since. 

     

    Thanks!

    So far so good (no xcode installed on my machine).

    I'm having the identical problem... the MBPr is getting hot when I close the lid and put in my backpack. Last night when I pulled it out, the fans were going full blast. I thought it was a result of running VMware Fusion. I shut it down... and then had the same issue this morning. I've had it for more than week, and I just started having the problem. Any hints as to what it might be?

    no idea. Chrome might be problematic (it crashes my system). try get rid of it for a while.

  • yanz67 Level 1 (0 points)

    i also think chrome might the culprit here.  After removing all versions of chrome i haven't had any problems with the mbp running while lid being closed.  Even when i have xcode running (which i thought might be turning the mac on)  Do you have chrome installed?  Post back.

    I'm not running Chrome. I have it installed, but I'm not running it. I have Mail, Calendar, Address book, Firefox running and that's it. I did have Fusion running the first time it happened, but I've terminated it... and am still seeing the problem.

    When closing the lid of your notebook, always make sure the light starts pulsing before leaving it. If it doesn't, try to determine what is keeping it from sleeping. If you don't have time for diagnostics, just power it off.

    What light? There does not appear to be a light on the MacBook with retina. (My old MacBook has a light). Is there a light I may not be aware of?
