    Up the irons
    My fans spin up when the Spotlight indexes. Could this be happening to you?

    As for cooling, I have mine propped up on a dictionary and thesaurus to allow air to flow underneath the machine. I have the blue freezer gel packs that I will put under the machine and it draws the heat effectively.

    I second smcfancontrol. I use it on my Macbook. It used to run a bit hot for my liking but I raised the min. fan speed from ~1800 to 2222. Now it seems to run much cooler. =]
