    iBook G4 Getting Hot!
    Just got my new 1Ghz G4 iBook Superdrive/Bluetooth several days ago. When we play DVD movies, the iBook get quite warm (actually hot). Is this normal? Is there software to check the temperature on the iBook?

    Even when I had the iBook on a flat and even surface, it still was very warm. When not playing DVDs, the iBook doesn't get hot.

    Very normal - try to keep the vents lower left corner clear for air, and never close the display without being sure sleep mode - shutdown is on :cool:

    iBook Sleep Mode ?
    Why do you need to make sure the Sleep Mode is on? Can you damage anything?

    I know this isn't strictly relevant but I find my laptop gets too hot for my lap so I was looking around for a solution and found this iLap which looks very cool - http://www.raindesigninc.com/ilap.html (but expensive and only in the US)
