    Hi everyone!

    I have a 1.5 year old Blackbook. It has been a dream machine till just recently...

    I usually have YM, Itunes, and MS Word running... Out of nowhere, my macbook would start whirring, as if it was a jetplane getting ready for take off.
    I've done the whole activity monitor thing, believe me, I run apps on the minimum. Its not as if I was editing videos or pics or doing something CPU extensive. I would occasionally open safari, but just for sites like google or yahoo. No I do not go to flash intensive sites since that eats up a lot of CPU action hence heat.
    And no, I do not have anything "printing" (I researched this before). Its annoying really! I take of this machine like a baby and this is what I get in return?! A 15 thousand peso notebook wouldnt act up like this... And come on... Its just YM, word and I tunes?!

    Hope somebody can help... This is really leaving a bad taste in my mouth...

    :(
