Powerbook running a little too hot?

A while back i started a thread because i thought my PB was running hot. Well it turns out it was fine but now i have a new concern. I have a temperature monitor and i have noticed that lately as soon as i open a program, my temperature shoots up to 143-146 degrees, and the fan kicks on. I didnt much about this but i noticed that the temps would stay at that range and the fans would never shut off for hours. Sound like a problem?

Do you have it set to performance set to Automatic or Highest?

Edit: Hopefully you already checked to see what background apps you may have running.
If you are the type of person who solves all their problems with a hammer, because it is the only tool in your toolbox. It would be wise of you to never get in an argument with a gunsmith.
