I've had my macbook for about 1.5 years now and today the fan started running really loud and the battery only lasts for about an hour and a half. It's never done this before today. What do you think the problem is?

I had the fan problem. It started after I downloaded a load of ebooks. Turns out that Spotlight was trying to index several gigs of written word. Once I turned Spotlight off, the problem was solved. Of course, that means you have to live without Spotlight.
