    Fan keeps turning on,... even though activity monitor show 90% idle?

    This happens when watch movie HD trailer and continue for about 5 min after i finished watching. Then it faded away.

    And it becomes hot,....

    Hmmm,.... my uMB is a lot quieter and cooler,.....

    Have you tried taking a look at the temperatures using iStat or the like?

    The MBA has relatively poor cooling (compared to most laptops), so it tends to suffer from thermal issues quite a bit -- it's not uncommon to hear the fans quite frequently.

    Mine is running hot and fan is going crazy as well. Happened after 10.5.7 update. Anyone has a fix?
