    Right now my MBP is setting idle (except for this process of course) and the fans are screaming at 5607RPM. I'm having this happen more and more lately. Anyone have an idea of what is causing it?

    Attached is a screen shot that shows what is running. NETserver is using almost 70%. Why? It usually takes a reboot to get the fans back to normal.

    What is NETserver? I don't have it running on my system (i7 MBP)

    It's using 70% of the CPU and making things warm, and thus causing the fans to come on. Find out what it is, and get rid of it if you don't need it. If you do need it, maybe look for an updated version.

    Found a thread here with your same issue. It seems to be related to Brother printers. The guys in that thread just removed a related process, LOGINserver, from the startup list and it fixed everything, but removed the ability to press the "scan" button on the printer.
