    Hi everyone. I received Leopard yesterday, and I did a mindwipe of my hard drive, and a fresh install of leopard.
    Everything seems to be working okay. I've had some software hang, but only once or twice (and they're third-party apps).
    The thing I've noticed, is that when I use the finder coverflow view, my fans run very, very fast on my 2.0 Gh white macbook. Has anyone else noticed this? Could it be the VRAM?
    Any help or comments would be great! Thanks in advance.

    Its producing the Coverflow thumbnails. Mine does the same.

    Thanks guys. Any thoughts? Could the load on the CPU for coverflow be causing this?

    I was just thinking of something else: I use the coverflow view heavily in Tiger, in Itunes, and there's no issue with the fans running fast. Could there be a firmware update coming for this down the pike?

    Should be OK once all the files have been thumbnail'd.
