    My iBook has a fan!
    Well, I always knew it was in there, but today was the first time I've ever heard it come on. Now it has me slightly worried about internal temps., so I may look into some sort of ventilated platform/docking station (since it stays on my desk most of the time). Any suggestions?

    My fan comes on all the time in my powerbook.. I am definitely not worried about it though and I doubt that you should be either. iBooks run quite a bit cooler than the powerbooks so I wouldnt give it a second thought..

    I have an iBook and a Powerbook. As Murlyn has noted the Powerbook runs hotter than the iBook. My Powerbook fan comes on quite a bit. Whereas my iBook, I don't hear it that often. Just make sure you don't block the vents, and you should me all right.

    I use a Tragus Chill Mat and it helps to keep it under 130F mostly when playing UT2003 or Vendetta. I have to say it helps a lot when i use it from the very begining, ifi just connect it when the iBook is already over 130F it takes time to cool down.

    What kind of surface did you have your iBook on at the time? Because whenever I have my iBook on and laying on the bed, that is the only instance the fan comes on.
