Hi. I just have some curious questions. How I basically use or used my computers/old desktop, is that I turn it on, and leave it on until I have to go somewhere, or to bed. Usually, it is turned on for 6-12 hours straight. I do the same thing with my new macbook pro. But with this fancy computer, it is very silent and peaceful. It goes to sleep when I am AFK very fast. I really think it saves more power than the desktop. Now, I notice my macbook gets really hot. It's always on the table, so when I realized it was hot while I'm typing away, I lifted and gave it some air, started using it on my lap. The temperature went down then. I'm just wondering, is this normal?? EDIT: Also note that, my macbook pro is always plugged into charge. I just took it off now when I realize it was too hot. That might have helped reduce the temperature. Is it inadvisable to keep the plug in my laptop? When I use it on the table after awhile I will eventually notice the warmness on top of the keyboard and basically the base; sides of trackpad. Also I tried running it unplugged, and it still got really hot underneath. Should I be worried? Another thing is about the fan. When should I be hearing the fan? I don't think I have noticed and heard the fan from my macbook. I am not sure if every time I boot this I should hear a fan, but when I restarted I didn't hear it. I might have gotten used to the annoying fan of my desktop. So is this normal for my Macbook PRO? Now when I start CSS (Counter Strike Source) and join a server, I don't hear a fan. I'm just wondering because I know fans are good. And before buying I knew that this macbook would be great because it would be silent but at the same time know how to use the fan when needed. Am I wrong? Shouldn't there be fans going on with my macbook to release air or something? I don't have any other video games to test on, or any other heavy movies like blu ray to play. It will have to wait until Monday. Are there any tests you guys would like to recommend for me to try? Overall, can you guys give me examples of tests to try out if my macbook is at its best or just to satisfy myself and know that my macbook is good to go? On another note, am I being too micro-managing or paranoid? Thank you for your time and help! I greatly appreciate it!
