    i am currently connected to my school network through the ethernet port...and once i plug it in...the fans rev up to 6200...and i am at 82oc...i only have 10% of idle cpu...and the macbook now sounds like a car.

    true say i have the best looking laptop in my class...but doesnt sound too good when the macbook sounds louder than the desktop besides me!!!

    why does it do this???

    any patches i need to install...is it my macbook...or the network demanding too much??

    thank you in advance guys

    Are running an application that requires an internet connection?? For example any app that sends/receives data constantly from the internet. Safari would be an exception unless you visit flash-heavy sites (youtube, video ads in the web pages). Those are my only guesses. Hope this helped.

    Syslogd is a system logger: it logs down system activity.

    Syslogd is only going to take up CPU if some other process is generating lot and lots (I and I mean lots) of messages. There are a few logs listed in Console. It could be any one of them. If you use the Terminal, you can go to "cd /var/logs" and type "ls -al". The largest file will be the one with those error messages. Chances are, it will be significantly larger than all the other files there. I don't know if you can navigate to that folder in the Finder. It might be "/private/var/logs" in the Finder (in the finder, choose "go", then type "/private/var/logs" without hyphens).

    Try and post the results, ok?
