    Is it just me or are the MBP fans kicking in earlier now... its still cool to the touch but the fans now running... im sure they weren't coming on this early before the update..

    Anyone else with an MBP notice this?

    It seems they are kicking in earlier. My laptop is sat on a desk and the fans have come on with it just idling. The machine is very hot and the fans don't seem to be doing anything.

    Before the fans would only ever come on when I'm playing games.
