    I have a 2011 11" 2GB/64GB SSD/1.6GHz MacBook Air. Every time I place the computer in sleep mode when it is plugged in or if I plug it in while in sleep mode the fan kicks in and starts running until I unplug the machine. I have done both a PRAM zap and SMC reset with no luck. All sharing is turned off and bluetooth is disabled. Thoughts?

    This EXACT same thing was happening to me.

    Here is my post on what I did to fix the problem:

    I wish it was solved so quickly for me!

    You may have to reinstall the OS, as indicated in the post above. I had a friend and he had to do this after taking it to the Apple Store. It did solve the problem.
