    Ishirase: you said 10.2 not 10.5.2.

    Anyway, I'd imagine that the usual indexing and spotlighting and such is just running the system a bit hard at the moment. If you're worried about your temps, post what they actually are and maybe someone will know if it's a problem. As it is, we don't know what "hotter" means.

    My friend has a 2.2 SR MBP and he says that his computer is usually at 90F or below, but lately (only after 10.5.2) it has been running hotter (around 120F). It's been a few hours since he updated.

    Actually, on my system the temps are running about a few degrees cooler than before under full CPU load (while running SETI and Climateprediction files on BOINC). Before, the CPU temp would routinely hit about 140 degrees. Right now, it's averaging about 131 degrees with peaks at 137.

    I do notice that the fans are running faster and more often. Overall, it's running cooler, but audibly noisier. Interesting because my Xbench benchmarks are showing the CPU benchmarks noticeably higher with 10.5.2, and the OpenGL benchmarks lower than 10.5.1.
