  1. macrumors regular

    I searched for this, but other than my original manuals no place tells me what operating temp my iBook should remain within.

    I got a shareware program called Temperature Monitor the other day and it has my machine up above 124 sometimes and I'm worried.

    SO, what temp should my iBook remain at when I'm using it?

    Typical temps for me are:

    Processor - 114
    Power Supply - 110
    Graphics Processor - 118
    and Battery - 98ish


  2. macrumors 6502

    All of this is normal. The computer will shut off if it gets too hot.
    Just don't place it on a blanket of anything that will insulate the bottom.
  3. macrumors G4

    which ibook is this?, dose it feel hot on your lap?, if it was really too hot you would be getting crashes and kernel panics.

    (i assume this is fahrenheit (which is a stupid temperature scale kelvin all the way) if it's Celsius thats way way too high, the highest i ever got was 80 degrees and that was with a dual processor g4 cube when i had no fan on it)
