emaarkhan Level 1 Level 1


I got my macbook nearly 2 months ago. its 2012 13"macbook pro n i have running mountain lion 10.8.2.The left side gets too much hot.i think its battery. its my clothes like jeans which keep me save otherwise, it would burn my skin! the heat up happens within 15-30 mins. i have istat and its telling me my fan exhaust is between 3k-4k.sometimes it even goes to 6.5k. I also have issue of battery. i read that after 10.8.2 update the battery isssue get solved but mine got worse. i get 3 to 3.5 hours tops. what is wrong. should i get it fixed because its just months old and being so much heat up n instead of 7 hrs i get 3 hrs.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    What programs are running?


    This is the biggest factor in battery life and fan speed. For example, I have Safari open at the moment. If I open World of Warcraft my computer will do exactly what you have described and if I close it again it will go back to "normal".

    That happens out of nothing, sometimes on fb, or streaming video, or just video on dvd.like now when i posted the question it was 3k and now its almost 4k and i have opened just 7 tabs on firefox n one is streaming video.
