    Hi

    Macbook runs Windows XP relatively hotter.
    Once i jus booted up XP, n did a lil of browsin for 10 mins, then i booted back to leopard and found that the CPU temp was 66C against the normal of 53C-58C durin normal browsin in leopard.

    Why is this huge difference?

    yea dont worry about it, it happens to EVERY mac.. windows for some reason cant communicate as well as leopard can with the hardware (as well as many other reasons).

    im afraid you will have to build a bridge.

    oh yes, high CPU usage + high GPU usage + windows = temperature galore!!

    i would say somewher around 110°C, the computer will shut itself down when it thinks it is hot enough.. its clever :)

    I am surprised that nobody suggested this:

    open the windows to let the air in!

    ..ah.
