Every day when I come home, my MBA is burning hot.

    It's on "standby" all day, but when I pick it up, its noticeably warm, almost hot.

    This only happened after I installed the Mavericks beta.. is this happening for anyone else?

    Sounds like it isn't sleeping properly..I'd ditch Mavericks or shut it off when not in use.

    How old is your MBA? It should be running a bit cooler on Mavericks

    It's one of the brand new Haswell ones.

    And I just close the lid of the MBA, which puts it to sleep.

    It actually runs cooler once I start using it, funnily.

    What DP version are your running? :confused: (I would hope somebody with 1000+ posts would know to supply that info).

    There is a thread here about battery drain while in sleep mode. I thought this was fixed in DP6 though. What is your battery depletion? Anything out of the ordinary?

    I just opened mine after it was asleep all day. Cool as a cucumber. Been that way on all DPs - it's on six now. Do you have power nap enabled? I don't.

    I have had my Retina MBP15 do this a couple times (well maybe only once, not sure now). But after a reboot it never did it again. I think this started with DP5.
