    So I was sitting here doing work on my computer. Only this I had open was Omni Outliner Pro and my MBP fan speeds were reaching up to 6000 rpms. I shut down my Apple TV and the fan speeds went straight down. The weird thing is iTunes wasn't even running just the Apple TV that is synced.

    Can anyone explain this to me?

    Thanks.

    Not much we can help with without know what your CPU and applications were doing.

    Try to see if you can replicate it with Activity Monitor open.

    It sounds like a fluke otherwise. Not really worth posting about it.

    Well I checked my activity monitor and nothing was out of the ordinary.

    To to replicate the fan spin up if possible with Activity Monitor open. :eek:

    I get the occasional random program going haywire as well. It just happens sometimes. If it's reproducible and you can check the cause in Activity Monitor then we have something to work on.

    yeah I can't replicate it at the moment. You must be right and it was a fluke. However, it was pretty weird. Thanks for trying to help anyways.
