    Last night, I went to sleep with my RMBP hooked up to my 27inch cinema display in clamshell mode. When i got into bed, i noticed that iTunes Visualizer was on. I was to lazy to get up and turn it off. When i woke up, I noticed that iTunes visualizer was moving slowly. No biggie. Just close iTunes.. Turns out, my entire system was moving rather slow. I restarted the computer (first time ever). It booted up slowly as well. I went to check the ram etc. Ram available was good. I then saw the temperature of the computer. I immediately turned it off. Every temperature istat gave me, was in the high 130s. After letting it sit for a couple of minutes in front of the air conditioner vent. I turned it on. These are the temperatures that it is STILL reading...

    I'd say that's Fahrenheit, and thus, perfectly fine.

    hmmm, y'all are right.. it was Fahrenheit.... Since when does istat come default as Fahrenheit instead of celsius?
