    For the last couple hours, I'll be doing some work, and then the fans come on, softly, then gradually get louder and louder until they are really quite loud. every time this has happened I've put it to sleep so that the fans go off. is this normal? Is it just that I'm pushing it to hard? All i was doing was put album art into itunes. Anyway, what should I do if this situation is normal?

    No you are not pushing it to far...

    I picture my fan when it does that as a Rocket ship ready to blast off!:D

    What sort of Mac is it? Macs are meant to fall asleep before they get to the point of overheating so I wouldn't worry about it too much. :)

    Haha, alright thanks everyone.

    And yeah, it did sound like a rocket ship. I honestly thought it was going to lift off (or explode!)

    I was really freaked out when my macbook started to "take-off" for the first time.
    I was about to call AppleCare until my friend told me it was just the fans.
    I felt so stupid!
