MBP cooler with 10.4.8?

Message #1 - Posted 2006/10/10 - Rexx Magnus

I've noticed that my MBP seems to run fairly cool even when closed now (compared to the egg-frying temperature from before). Has anyone else noticed this?

Cheers,

Yes, without question

The fan noise was annoying the hell out of me (as well as the heat! I couldn't hear myself think)

After the 10.4.8 update, the MPB runs cooler. I thought it was just coincidence though. A very welcome (and overdue) update

Mine still fries eggs.

How does one run an MBP closed? Mine sleeps when I shut the lid.

I suppose if there is no external monitor hooked up (DVI) then it presumes you want it to sleep.

To activate this feature, put the computer to sleep by closing the lid and wake it through an external keyboard[1], while attached to an external monitor.

Mine had the logic board replaced when the latest revision came out (and the exchange was announced here) - it ran much quieter, but you still knew when both cores were on, but it was still very hot until this update came out.

me too. I wondered wether the "energy saver" setup would have been silently changed by the update, but that's not the case. With so less heat dissipated the autonomy cannot but increase further!
