Hey guys and gals.

I left my macbook pro upstairs to charge while I was uploading a few large PSD (about 3gb worth) to my dropbox account as well as downloading some raw video footage from a job (about 10GB).. as WELL as charging up from about 50%..

I just went upstairs to grab it and noticed that it's warm... even though the computer was sleeping.

Is this normal? I can't seem to remember for the life of me if i've ever had it idle for a while while it was charging and it was cool to the touch when I grabbed it.

I think i'm just being paranoid.. but does anyone else's macbook pro heat up while just left charging doing natta?

Was it uploading from the macbook? That is actually a kinda stressful operation. Your mac was probably not idling, it had turned off the display but was still working hard.
