    It's the sensor. There's a few programs out there that will help with that. Try this one.

    yeah, thanks for that! it works on os x but not on windows 7! i can put it on manual join windows but if i play a game or something the temperature goes higher and higher cause the fan is on manual. is there any other possibility

    fan turns on using Java

    My MacBookPro is usually very quiet, even with Netflix. However the fan revs into high gear when I'm on Pogo and playing a game using Java. I am not a techie, so please - speak English if you have some ideas of what can help. :D

    I would really like to lower the noise level!

    is the windows 7 in parallel or bootcamp?


    are you using a 13 or 15 mbp?
