    One of the possible reasons could be overheating. What kind of surface are you using your MB on? For proper ventilation, use it on a hard surface that allows for proper airflow. Secondly, are the fans clogged? Removing any dust or other impediments using something like a can of compressed air will allow the fans to operate to their fullest potential.

    Also sounds like a possible graphics hardware/driver problem.
    I'm not a mac expert so I can't help specifically.. might give someone else an idea though.
