    so my mbp (07) is running at like 80 degrees C and the only thing I have open is safari and word. the fan is constantly blasting @ 5000-6000rpm and i can't figure out why its running so hot. it used to be waay cooler :dunno:

    what happens when you close safari...

    safari on one of my systems is borked, it makes my harddrive click and my computer slow down, then after a bit fans kick in... even if i'm not doing anything, having safari open at all screws my system...

    i deleted like 50 gigs of stuff and didn't restart so it reindexed on the reboot and now its running a lot cooler.

    safari does seem to be taking a lot of resources tho

    download smcFanControl if it keeps up, lets you control your fans to get a quick cool down
