    I have a MacBook v 10.4.11 that is fairly new, about 10 months old. I noticed that lately, my computer will randomly start moving very slowly and the fan rotating much more quickly than normal. By randomly, I mean it does not matter exactly what I am doing at the time, or how many applications I have open. I downloaded a widget to check temperatures and the like, and this is what I found:

    CPU A: 78
    Heatsink A: 65
    Heatsink B: 63
    Enclosure Base: 32
    Northbridge 1: 58
    Northbridge 2: 59
    Mem Bank A1: 50
    HD: 35
    Exhaust far: 6192 rpm

    From what I can tell from other posts, this is fairly hot..

    Yes assuming degrees C - quite warm.

    At idle the fan will be running about 1600-1800rpm.

    You need to look in Activity Monitor to find out what is using up your cpu usage. Something is so check all processes (not just user).

    If you are using iStatPro widget then you should see a graph and a display of what is happening with the cpu.
