    I think my 2010 15" i7 MacBook Pro is overheating. Today when I was in bootcamp playing the sims 3 my MacBook suddenly went to sleep. I checked the MacBook and it was sper hot. The MacBook was in clamshell mode with a monitor keyboard & Mouse.:confused:

    Install iStat Pro to get accurate readings of your temps, among other things.

    Do you experience similar heat issues if you play Sims 3 on OS X?

    That's pretty cold. I'm at 145F, just doing a file transfer and surfing this site.

    I don't think that's possible. Your Mac wouldn't even get that cold unless you were in ambient temps at or below 62 degrees F (and your computer was off). I'm guessing you're not in this position! Are you sure you aren't reading a celsius temp? Mine has been sitting idle for the last hour and it's at 49C.

    62C would put you at about 144F...that sounds a lot more accurate.

    hehe i just assumed it was f but it does make more sense to be celsius, rollin 55 now and my room is like 64-66 f depending on how hot the day was (basement bedroom ftw)

    If you're referring to iStat Pro, click the small "i" in the top left corner to check your settings.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions: Apple Notebook Battery FAQ
