    Generally: Ripping DVDs with Handbreak - and playing some games - are some of the most CPU intensive tasks you can do on any computer, so the machine will get much, much hotter doing this than light browsing and word processing. I wouldn't worry too much of temperatures under 80°C on a laptop. Now, if you reach 100°C I would get someone to look at it... ;)

    When you close the lid on the machine, it will assume you want it to go to sleep, and as part of that it will turn off the backlight on your screen. Even without the light you will be able to make out the contents on your screen, including the mouse pointer; everything is just very, very dark until the light comes on again... does that sound like what you're experiencing...?

    Those temps sound normal. I use smcfancontrol to force my fan speed in my 13" mbp to 5000 rpm. That keeps the highest temp at 165 - 170F.

    The screen going black doesn't sound normal. My screen stays normal and I can use my machine to do something else while handbrake is running.

    Handbrake does you 100% of your CPU power, I'm reaching about 90°C while running handbrake after awhile.

    I am not so sure. I only know that this happen during handbrake. After encoding for awhile. I leave it encode while away to eat something. 30 min later, i check. the screen is black. The only thing i see is the mouse pointer and nothing else. I try to move the mouse pointer and press dashboard but dashboard does not show. it still black. after i close the lid then it return to normal.

    On my aluminum unibody MacBook, it will get to around 80C when using handbrake to rip and encode DVDs. With my new 21.5" iMac, it only gets up to around 55C max doing the same thing. So it looks like the 80C for the notebooks is about normal, but man does that feel hot, especially with the aluminum enclosure.

    I am not so sure. I only know that this had happen to me during handbrake so far. After encoding for awhile. I leave it encode while away to eat something. 30 min later, i check. the screen is black. The only thing i see is the mouse pointer and nothing else. I try to move the mouse pointer and press dashboard but dashboard does not show. it still black. after i close the lid then it return to normal.

    Check your System Preferences -> Energy:

    Se if the screen sleeps after a certain time of inactivity (DVD ripping is inactivity, as far as the screen is concerned ;).)
