    This started yesterday. Every time I use my notebook the fan is on. What's wrong?

    Go to Applications -> Utilities -> Activity Monitor. When it opens, select "All Processes" from the drop down menu at the top. Sort by CPU. Is something taking up a lot of CPU?

    I seen something taking 95.60% CPU. The process name is "blued". I don't know what that is. Should I click "quit process"?

    Is it the bluetooth because I use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard?

    I'm not sure. I already clicked "quit process", which I thought would be the end of it. Now, every time I log on the fan starts running so I have to click "quit process" every time. How do I fix this?????
