    I used my macbook without it plugged in for class quite often and while I'm at the library. Lately the fans have been kicking on quite a bit when I only have word, adium and firefox open. Before it would stay around 4-12% cpu usage on each core and now I'm getting 15-20% on one and 60-75% on the other. Any ideas?
