    That worries me because I can kind of make out the sound of my fan and I'm not doing much either. Normally this 15inch PB is dead quiet.

    Sounds like an evil plot by Apple to burn out Fans/Power Supplies and gain more revenue when you bring your Macs in to get them fixed!

    Bwahahahahahahahah!

    If your machine is idle and the fans are going full blast shut it down for awhile. If that doesnt work fill your bathtub with cold water and put it in there for awhile and see how its going after.
