My FPS in WoW has gone down by about 30%, my temps are up across the board(GPU is at 63c, CPU at 49c, not doing anything on my imac but typing this) and Safari won't open as it doesn't like the last pass plug in. But without it opening I can't even disable the plugin. So no safari for now.

Also itunes won't download the 11 app updates that I have. No error, just doesn't do anything. And having network connectivity issues. Some sites open, most don't.

I don't game much, so no advice there. You can delete Safari plugins from /Library/Internet Plug-Ins or extensions from ~/Library/Safari/Extensions
Temps are up from SL.
I had to download apps from 10.4 individually not the all at once button.

Spotlight's all done reindexing your hard drive? That used a fair amount of processor on my Mac after the install, and generally slowed things down a little.
I don't know. How do I tell? I don't hear the hard drive thrashing. Still my GPU is now at 69c, hard drive indexing shouldn't cause the GPU temp to climb like that.

There is a small dot in the middle of the spotlight. Plus clicking spotlight says it is being indexed and gives an ETA on when it is done.

Try using the Activity Monitor app. Set it to show All Processes and then sort the % CPU column downwards. If it's spotlight, you'll see spotlight or mdworker Process Names towards the top.

It's not indexing. GPU temp is slowly dropping now. Currently at 57c. CPU temp hasn't changed and is still at 46c. Ambient is 18c.

From everything I read prior to the release Lion just runs hotter. I never checked my temps but I don't doubt what I have read. I happen to use a Belkin laptop support with a fan blowing on my laptop so I don't notice it much.
