I'm running a 2.16 core 2 duo macbook pro with 2 gigs of ram.
Right now with adium, thunderbird, mozilla, and itunes... the computer is showing 82 degrees C and and the fans are spinning at 4000k according to istat.

Its been like this for a week now and i'm scared the baby is going to die.
What should i do?

I do have 2 years of apple care.
I've also noticed that the battery only gets at most 45 min... with the backlight on the lowest setting. (running only mozilla)
Can i get that replaced?

thanks for you help.

Now thats not right. How many loadcycles do you have on the battery? How old is the machine?

My MBP generates a heat of around 60C while running similar applications.

How ventilated is your setup? How about ambient temperature?

i would say its a cold room.
when I run serato, it even reaches higher temps.

if i close them the temperature doesn't change much.
maybe 2-3 degrees

right now, after an hour of use it says...
82 degrees at 4100 rpm (right and left fan)
