    I upgraded on a 2009 MBA.
    The fan runs constantly now.
    Starts within a minute of starting up the machine and the only way to stop it is to shut down.

    It wasn't happening with Lion.
    Anyone else in the same situation?

    I was getting this at first - i put the machine into sleep mode, the fan went off after about 2 minutes. Closed the lid, went to make a cup of tea, came back and opened the lid - all fine.

    Just tried it.

    Seems to work fine.
    Thanks for the tip.

    Running very hot too- I'm going back to Lion tomorrow.
