    I had the whine sometimes for the last month on my MacBook Pro, and when it came, all I had to do was open the mirror widget, and the close it, and it was gone. Now when I close it, the whine comes back and wont stop. All of a sudden. It makes no sense. Any ideas?

    Yep the keyboard update for some caused the whine to come back.

    I just bought a MBP two weeks ago and am not experiencing any whine at all... I've heard other users talk about it though, is it something that was fixed in newer versions?

    Like a whine. :p

    In all honesty, it's a really high pitched whiney buzz. I might compare it to a TV, you know when a TV is on but it's muted and you can still hear something (an electronic buzz). It's basically a lot like that, only much more annoying and much louder.

    ask apple, since it is a firmware update i doubt it is easily possible

    I received my macbook this past friday (5/5) and I had none of the problems that were mentioned. I updated the firmware and the "cpu whine" barely, and I mean BARELY, became noticeable. The mirror widget solution worked for me, but I wouldn't even consider what I encountered to be a whine. Heat is an issue occasionally, but you need to remember a few things. A) The area above the F-keys is meant to dispell heat. B) The thing has a crazy processor in an aluminum case, it's obviously going to get warm. C) Macs run notoriously hot (I've asked quite a few Mac users, one with a 15" PB G4, the other with a 12" PB G4, both said that even before the "heat scandal" theirs ran hot). Now, if yours is running hot enough to burn you, there's an issue.. but I have yet to encounter that problem.

    I used Desinstaller to kill the keyboard update (which in turn also killed the isight), then i reinstalled 10.4.6 update and now the hacks work again.
