    I have basic wow, with the burning crusade expansion pack and have been experiencing crashes from time to time. This could be related to the Carbonite Quest Helper or the temperature of my Macbook. I have tried ventilating my macbook to help lower the temperature. I also have the detail of the crash:

    What temperature is your MacBook running at? CoreDuoTemp will give you this information.

    well it fluctuates up and down, but the range is between 150 and maxes out rarely at 180. I know that's extremely hot, but im using a laptop cooler with good air circulation and don't know what else to do.

    That is extremely hot, so much so that you risk damaging your computer. WoW crashing is just a symptom of the problem.

    Does the temperature return to a more reasonable level when you quit WoW?

    yes, it returns to about 110-135 after turning wow off or after crashing. What could i do to cool it further? Its not like a desktop where i could leave the case open.

    Do you turn it off much? If not, do so and leave it until it cools down fully, then start again and see if the problem continues. If you keep it on your bed or something that could also affect things, but I can't imagine playing from bed.

    Otherwise, if it's under warranty, call Apple. You've got a serious hardware problem there that needs to be sorted out.

    Yes, if my game does crash, I let it cool off then return to playing. I also checked the Blizzard website and did the whole run of there suggestions, which included some disk repair thing and some other things. I'm about to try that and see if it works, but after all of these problems I don't feel too optimistic.
