    Based on all the DP, has ML experienced any heat issues like Lion did?

    My MBP 2008 overheats like there's no tomorrow.

    Yeah, I'm going to try resetting SMC. I've already taken care of Spotlight and its demon (pun on daemon? xD) MDSworker process.

    Great news (perhaps)! DP4 update no longer overheats! :D Stays at 2500RPM and 70 degrees C with no burning feeling while holding it.

    Isn't that a bit on the hot side? I'll usually hover in the mid/high 40's during normal use. I've noticed Lion runs a bit warmer than SL but in the 70's seems too hot?

    70s definitely seems hot. My MacBook Air 11" from last year has been running hot on DP4 and the battery life is horrid right now. The processes "mdworker", "storeagent" and "mds" have been hogging my CPU causing my temps to get high and my battery life to drop horribly.

    I try to keep my CPU temps in the 50s Celsius, and in order to do so, my fans have pretty much consistently been running at 4500 RPM.
