    ok, my macbook has recently developed a very annoying problem. i realize this has probably been covered a dozen times but i cant seem to find a sure fire answer to my specific problem. when i boot up my macbook, no matter what situation it runs in the lower 70*C and fan at 6200 rpm. this is with no program running at all, literally all closed. i even logged out and let it sit at the user choice menu and the fan continues to blow hard and bottom remains hot. if someone could give me a little insight it would be appreciated and if u need specifics i'll post whatever is needed.

    There has to be something running in the background. Post what you have in Activity Monitor.

    Select "My Processes" in the drop-down menu and sort by CPU, then post the screen shot.

    If you select 'All Processes' from the drop-down in the toolbar, then we can see if it is a system process which is hogging your CPU.

    There is definetly something using CPU cycles, as we can see from the graphs at the bottom of the activity monitor window.
