    Suddenly the lion became crawling tonight and the mbp cpu fan was 'shouting', i struggled to open the activity monitor and found out that the distnoted process was taking all the cpu time.
    After I killed the distnoted, the system calmed down and then the distnoed appeared again but it was then harmonic.

    It has happened twicely.

    I don't know how to avoid this, I had thought the macbook pro does not have a cpu fan before this.:)

    What is the matter?

    A google search for "disnoted mac" will give you some info. disnoted is distributed notification process.

    Without more info on what mac you are using it's hard to say what might have caused it.

    All laptops have fans - otherwise they would melt down.
