It's the sensor. There's a few programs out there that will help with that. Try this one.

fan turns on using Java

My MacBookPro is usually very quiet, even with Netflix. However the fan revs into high gear when I'm on Pogo and playing a game using Java. I am not a techie, so please - speak English if you have some ideas of what can help.

I would really like to lower the noise level!

Thanks!
