I found this- My pro retina started this stupid trick for the first time when I was composing a simple document in pages..... after trawling this discussion with growing alarm I found this site.
I tried the iCloud solution on
- Because the machine was so new (and my old macbook was so old) I wasn't used to iCloud, and had left everything checked.
I don't need to see my stuff on other devices, I removed the photos, and five documents that were there. Instant reduction from 85% to 1.2% on the activity monitor -and all I had running was the finder and Safari. Fans immediately shut the **** up, machine not pretending to be a George Foreman Grill any more Happy.
The advice was from an Apple genius- hey maybe they do know something.......
" the genius suggested that it could be a corrupt iWork file that iCloud is trying to sync. He suggested that if I wanted to turn it back on, to download all my iCloud documents, delete them from iCloud and slowly put them back, while watching Activity Monitor for runaway processes."
yup yup , right here! i am in the netherlands i bought my macbook retina16gb ssd 500g early 2013. the fan issue is a huge concern. Im wondering if chips are frying in there because the laptop gets so hot and the fan is spinning. completely dont understand it at all.
ok i might be download or convert files and i especially use my macbook to make music but the computer is constantly warm. i dont want it to crash.
what do i do.
I've had the same issue for awhile now, and I figured out what caused it: iCloud's Documents and Data and Photos syncing are causing the Mac's CPU to overheat and run the fans--even if the computer isn't doing anything taxing. By disabling those two services, my fans instantly turned off, and the Mac has been buttery smooth since.
I'm guessing that they're constantly pinging the servers, similar to how DropBox decreases battery life. The issue is even apparent in the Yosemite Public Beta.
I have the same Issue since one year. I hoped that they bring up an Update in Yosemite to fix it but apple did just nothing.
My fan is going aggressive when I:
- Open iTunes and play something
- While watching streams in the Browser (in all of them!)
- While browsing on websites with a lot of animation (CSS3)
MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013), 2,8 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel Iris 1536 MB.
Its just sad for a 2300€ device.
Just purchased a new macbook pro with retina display. I merged my apps and had an issue with the fan continuously running at a fast speed and obvious heat. I checked the Activity Monitor and noticed that Google browser was causing a significant draw of memory. Deleted Google chrome, began using Safari and everything works perfect. I hope this helps....
