    My glassbook seems to be running kind of warm? I don't know if this is true, i'm not used to laptops, I'm coming from an iMac. However, my imac CPU temp never went above 65 C and i'm getting a little worried!

    What are you running?

    Mine was all messed up when I migrated all my settings and such from my black macbook to the new one, so I did a fresh install and everything was fine.

    Yeah, what the heck is happening to your computer? System Events and coreservices are definitely not processes that are supposed to run like that...ever, perhaps for such a small time period it shouldn't even appear in iStat.

    61c is never normal. You may have to replace the thermal paste and/or run your fans at max.

    61c and higher is perfectly normal depending on what you are doing.

    http://islayer.com/support/?p=24 or you can download it off Apple.com. Click on the download button at the top of the page and search for istat.

    I forget what I was doing...I know I 1.) Was watching a streaming .avi file from my airport-connected hard drive and 2.) running GameCast on ESPN.com, other than that I think I just had a few safari tabs open....
