    I was installing Windows on my new iMac and was called away by my crying baby during the section where Windows asks me to choose which drive to format and install on. I didn't get back to the computer for about 30 minutes. I was wondering if I caused any damage to the computer by letting it sit there mid-installation? Are the fans running during this time? Does Bootcamp control the fans? It felt warm but no warmer than leaving it on when using OSX. This is my first iMac so I guess I'm a little edgy about taking care of it.

    It's very unlikely that this would cause any damage.

    So everything should be ok? I read about power management problems here when Bootcamp first came out so I wasn't sure if those were about Windows itself or the bootcamp software.
