    one thing I've noticed on my macbook is that the temps will stay around it's initial temp from when I wake it up. Even when I start to push the computer, the temps will bounce up and down within a few degrees, but not by much. However, when I put the computer to sleep for about 30 seconds or so, and I wake it up and check the temps, they're read significantly higher than what was read less than a minute later. My Intel iMac doesn't do this however and you can watch the temps climb and fall depending on what you're doing.

    Does anyone get these odd readings from their portables?
