Well, maybe it's not hot enough?

Go into system preferences> energy saver> there should be a setting in there for the fan (not sure about this tho, I don't have a laptop)

Try and keep it off anything that prevent air movement under it, like on a bed or carpet. There are products that use fans under the portables to keep them cool and all seem to help from what I have read. Evan stands like the iCurve help.
I find mine gets to around 55 or 60 deg celsius before the fan comes on. Most of the heat on mine is the left side of the trackpad though as far as I know the processor is on the same side but under the keyboard so why it gets hotter there is beyond me. I think the hard drive is there but I did not think they got that warm.....
