It won't have anything to do with the battery. Open Activity Monitor and look for a program using a lot of CPU- that is your likely culprit. You may also want to take a look at how you're using it- ie. having the notebook on top of a blanket in bed, etc... will definitely cause it to get hot.

Certain VPN clients (especially Checkpoint) can cause abnormal CPU usage as well.

well i think i figured it out, ussually i have it on a desk when its pluged in so it allows it cool easier but ussually when i am using it on the battery i use it on my lap or on a blanket, so i think thats why. also i was using ps, and basically all my ram was being used? could that contribute to it?

ya ram can get quite warm.

Turn the fans up a bit when you know you are going to be using an intensive app e.g. ps or dreamweaver etc..

let me know if it goes ok

cheers chris
