    Is this just happening to me? I just noticed this just now so not sure if it's always been like this.. Could be the recent mac update I did but not too sure..When I am using the webcam with some1 on skype my fans go up to 6017rpm and my macs temp is 80 celsius.. is this normal? Anythin I can do to fix this?

    This is with a C2D Macbook Pro!

    Open activity monitor. Change it to show 'all processes'. Click the '% CPU' column to see what is using your CPU most. Might be something else that is hogging the CPU too.

    For my Skype I disabled animated emoticons, which seems to eat processor time even when you don't look at them.

    Anyways, video conferencing is one of the most CPU using 'everyday thing' you can do. And.. ask Skype themselves for problems with Skype.
