    Hello guys.
    I have Macbook 2.4 aluminum and I was just browsing the internet then suddenly the fan speed increased to 5200 rpm! i checked the cpu status through Active Monitor and fond out that LCCenguine is using almost 100% of the cpu as you see in the picture.
    I turned off Airport and restart the computer. when i logged in the LCCenguine started to do the same thing!
    Is this normal? or is it a software read error causing my laptop to run that much hotter?

    LCCengine after doing a bit of googling seems to be a system maintenance utility, changes are it detected that the computer was under light use and decided to run some heavy duty maintenance scripts and/or procedures.

    Doesn't Logitech use LCCengine for their mouse/keyboard related software?

    IIRC it was also the cause of many borked installs of Leopard.
