    is this normal? What temps do you get when your Pro is idle or almost idle?

    It's not idle. Follow every step of the following instructions precisely. Do not skip any steps.
    1. Launch Activity Monitor
    2. Change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes"
    3. Click on the "% CPU" column heading once or twice, so the arrow points downward (highest values on top). (If that column isn't visible, right-click on the column headings and check it, NOT "CPU Time")
    4. Click on the System Memory tab at the bottom.
    5. Take a screen shot of the entire Activity Monitor window, then scroll down to see the rest of the list, take another screen shot
    6. Post your screenshots.

    37C, but not a direct apple-to-apple comparison (groan)

    I'm running a 2.5Ghz Sandy Bridge 17" MBP.

    That said, your idle temps are entirely too high. You should be ~40C-42C, depending on what your ambient temperatures are.

    seems pretty hot to me. Check your fan outlets to make sure there is no dust clogging up the airflow.

    Ya that does seem a bit on the high end. My idle is around 40-43 Celsius with fans at 2k. SMC reset might be necessary if you can't find the source of the drain.
