    I am using my 2nd 15" MBP SR 2.4... 1st one gave me several kernel panics after I got it for a few days, exchanged... anyways, I noticed the CPU of this unit is quite hot...averaging 70 degrees or so... I then checked the activity monitor, there's a Process ID under root named "nano" is using 97.7% constantly... any ideas? I am not running any other applications.

    You have iStat Nano installed? That has stalled my system a couple of times.

    yep, seems like a process that got funky, just quit it. sometimes Azureus does that on me, starts using 90% CPU, i just quit it and re open and all is back to normal :D

    70'C is[/b hot for a SR MBP.

    It should never reach that temperature if you aren't doing much on it - mainly surfing the net etc.

    Mine can reach that if I'm doing intense things on it - such as decoding things or playing a game.

    You have an issue if your MBP is at 70'C whilst at idle.
