I have had my PB for around a year now, however, I recently sent it off to Apple to get my screen replaced (white dots problem.) When it came back, the fans appear to be running a lot more frequently than before and they make a rattling noise - it sounds as if the spinning fan was tapping something like a piece of paper or wire.

I was wondering if anyone else experienced these noises, and I wanted to know how long do your fans stay running after they kick in. Mine tend to kick in when i have itunes and safari (with a download) running - it seems to me that these apps should not cause the fans to spin - what are your thoughts.

Thank you all very very much, and have a great day!

did you experience the ratteling? Thanks for the link, I will check it out... however, I dont feel that the fan should be making noise... expecially seeing as it has never done it before. Any other ideas?
