    Not really, but when i play runescape on the MAcbook Pro 13" 2.26GHz, the temps go up to 75C. This is too hot, so is there a way to optimize Java?

    75˚C is nothing you should be worried about. :)

    In general Mac OS X handles Flash horribly. Battery life is horrible while dealing with flash, temperatures go way up, and Flash performance is a lot worse than on Windows. Send an e-mail to Adobe.

    Runescape is Java not Flash - no Adobe involved...

    at least your computer does not idle at 75°C like mine ;)

    you have nothing to worry about.

    Yeah actually the default "upper threshold" in my 15" MBP's SMC (i.e. the temp it has to get to to max the fan speed), is 90ºc, so 75ºc may feel really hot, but is within tolerances.

    I use Fan Control (not smcFanControl) to lower that threshold because I like my machine to run cooler at the cost of noisier fans.

    I think your computer is trying to tell you something....

    temperatures of 100°C are not uncommon on my original MBP - if it can widthstand these temperatures for 3+ years i dont think 1 hrs of some game will hurt it haha

    Now that said, I do want to mention that I permanently damaged a MBP by accidently running it closed (it had a weird insomnia issue) on a bed with soft enough covers that the rear vent was covered. I have no idea how hot it got, but it burned my fingers when I picked it up, and was unresponsive to any input for about 10 minutes until it cooled. From then on, it had minor graphic glitches when the GPU got above 65ºc and complete lock ups when the GPU hit 75ºc.
    Protect your macs from heat. If you ever notice a sleep issue, don't put it in a sleeve until you are sure it's sleeping, or you'll cook it, and definately don't run it with the vent covered.

    its good that you brought that up. and silly you for putting it on the bed like that!! i will always put it on a book then ontop of my lap when i am in bed, lots more air movement.

    too bad that it became unresponsive - must have been overheating and artifacting :( im happy mine isnt doing that YET *knock on wood*

    Our fan goes to 6.2k. And you can run it at 6.2k for a long long while.

    Pretty sure you'll want to change the computer before the fans blow out even if you have it on at 6.2k 24/7.
