    It seems that, even when sleeping, my rMBP always seems to be running much hotter (fans, etc) when I'm in my Windows 8 partition. No such problem in OSX...

    Any known resolutions?

    2 reasons

    1. drivers made by apple for windows are not very good
    2. if you have the 15", the 650m and the intel graphics are on all the time in bootcamp. In osx, they automatically switch depending on the task.

    Apple doesn't let you use the Intel integrated graphics under Windows, unless there is no discrete GPU present in the laptop hardware.

    Does that mean installing windows natively will make the laptop run cooler?
