    I recently installed leopard and initially everything was fine. It was Ok for a few days. Now however, the fans are on all the time way faster then they should be. Is there something I should try or do to sort it or is the heatsink/something expensive broken?

    Please don't let it be broken. =[

    can you check your activity monitor and find out what processes are taking all the CPU?

    theres one called PrintJobMgr which is taking up ~99 CPU. Is that the culprit? Is it safe to end that one?
