    When running windows in vmware the iMac or the Macbook Pro are generating lot of heat.
    How can I make them run cooler like in Mac os?

    Since VMWare uses a lot of CPU, the CPU gets hotter. You could limit the CPU usage in the VM settings to one core or fewer than it is currently set.

    Btw, the iMac can handle a lot of heat without spinning the fans faster.
    The MBP not so, and if the heat does not bother you, there is no harm.
