    Ever since I started playing WoW my MBP would get pretty hot to the point were my keys were burning my fingers, this would happen after around an hour of playtime. Two days into playing my laptop started freezing a lot, it started freezing up everything being unable to do anything (it would freeze for around 30sec then unfreeze for about 10seconds then freeze up again) This also kept happening even after I wasn't in game, so it came to a point were I had to format the mac, it works fine now but I'm afraid to play WoW again because of this freeze, anyone have any ideas on what to do?

    Also, I played SC2 & Heroes of Newerth with no problems.

    thanks in advance.

    I'm pretty sure the software on the mac has a "shut off" point that if the computer gets too hot it just shuts off. So unless yours is being buggy for whatever reason, you should have seen your laptop just shut off on you and not turn on for a bit if it was getting too hot.

    Annoying I guess but I prefer that than the computer frying itself (not that I've ever actually encountered my computer getting that hot).
