Just wondering how iBooks cool themselves, i'm not having any probs in that area i'm just used to noisy fans on PC. The silence i certainly a refreshing change but i'd like to know the root of this silence.

I don't know, mine gets REALLY hot though when I'm doing a lot of stuff. I worry about it. I've never had a notebook before so I'm not sure if it's normal, but I've read horror stories of warped cases and the such.

The iBook uses a temperature-controlled fan that will only come on when needed. Mine rarely comes one, and when it does it's only for a short while.

I'm not sure what specific internal temperature the machine/processor needs to reach before the fan comes on.

Mine comes on around 60 celcius.

I use temperature monitor when I want to see how hot it is inside my ibook...

I'm guessing the secret to the heat problem is the fact that a lot of heat rises up through the keyboard area and out of the back near the screen hinge.

If you lift up the keyboard and touch the surface there it is extremly hot, and this is also the reason you cannot run the ibook with the screen closed...
