Hi, My black macbook (C2D 2.2) now has a 60-97° c temperature when idle at about 5-10% cpu, and the fan is steady around the 6200rpm mark. I've looked around at forums and the only thing that seems like could be the cause is maybe a lack/abundance of thermal paste on the heatsink or something? I've checked with activity monitor and 'top' in terminal. There does not seem to be any hidden processes. I've also tried the HDD (an ssd one) in another computer and there it seems to run fine so it should not(?) be a software issue. I also tried a tip to turn of the computer, remove the battery and power supply cable and then hold the power button for >5 sec to somehow "reset the power distribution" or something. So, posting here to see if anyone has any suggestions before I declare myself helpless and send the machine to service? Im not afraid of opening the computer up and trying to fix things myself, and really prefer it, so thoughts are very welcome. more typical temperatures from iStat: Airport Card 57° Enclosure Base 27° Heatsink A 59° Heatsink B 59° Mam Bank A1 49° Northbrisge 53° cheers!
