    I had my new mbp connected to an LCD projector for class the other day. At the end of class I disconnected it and put it in my bag. When I got back to the my office I took it out and it was burning hot everywhere. I opened it up, there wasn't a response, but it eventually restarted. Everything seemed fine. Since then, I have connected it to the tv at home a few times to watch some shows, and the exhaust gets going at a fairly high rate. I never noticed the sound of the fan before, but iStat says its going at 6200+ rpm and its quite loud. It doesn't really feel hot. Anything to worry about or am I just being paranoid about my new baby?

    Just a guess

    But try resetting the PRAM and see if that brings things back to nomal.

    Like I said just a guess

    Today there was a very quiet, but still noticeable ticking sound. Also, when the fan is running high, and I gently tip the laptop on its side so the dvd-rom is facing the ceiling, there is a louder ticking, buzzing sound (like an electric razor). Any thoughts?
