My macbook gets so hot when i play some games on fb (even with it on a flat hard surface) that it shuts down. I can feel it and it's scalding hot at the bottom. I tried smcfancontrol as well as fancontrol. It shows them as open but it doesn't show a screen or anything as if it's not open. But like if i try to eject it it says it won't put it in trash or can't eject it as it's open. I have os 10.5 ty for any help. I bought this laptop about 8 or 9 months ago but only recently started using it often. I paid almost $2000/total just for the laptop. I want it to outlive me (okay not really) lol. I couldn't find any discussion about this certain issue with fan controls. I hope that this was okay.
