MacBook Pro :: Unibody MBP - Invisible Shield & Heat ?

Jan 8, 2009

A questions for all of those who have any sort of invisible shield (zagg, bse, bodyguardz etc etc) on their Unibody MBP (or MB for that matter).

Anyone having any issues with the cpu reaching dangerously high temperatures? I heard that the invisible shield is particularly bad because it insulates the aluminum on the mbp, thereby not allowing it to properly dissipate heat. This is one of the things that's preventing me from pulling the trigger on getting one.

MacBook Air :: Display Corruption After Using Invisible Shield

May 9, 2008

After reading about many people using invisible shield I decided to put on on my Air. After I turned it on though, it looked like the screenshots below. I was so careful with the water, but I'm assuming some must have got in? Is that the case and What can I do?

Apr 29, 2010

My worry with the hard shell cases is that they scratch the computer and/or let dust particles and other nasty stuff in. Perhaps this will be prevented with the use of the Invisible Shield?

OS X :: Zagg Invisible Shield And Snow Leopard

Aug 10, 2009

I just bought a mac and I'm a first time user so I had a few questions regarding the Snow Leopard upgrade and Zagg Invisible Shields.

1. Does the apple retail store install Zagg InvisibleSheilds for MacBook Pro's? If not, does any other store? I tried installing it myself but I ended up frustrated with a crappy looking MBP.

2. I'm trying to upgrade to Snow Leopard through the apple website but after i finish giving the required information, it takes me to the apple store cart, but the problem is that the cart is empty. Am I doing something wrong? I bought my MBP June 23 and I really don't want to buy Snow Leopard if I could just pay the $10 and upgrade it.

MacBook :: Does Unibody Heat Up With Lid Closed?

Feb 11, 2009

I wanted to use a MB in desktop mode, with a wireless mouse, keyboard, and external monitor. With the lid closed, and the external monitor as the only screen (main screen), will the MB heat up? I know it might have been an issue in early Leopard stages, but there were glitches where doing this desktop mode will cause the notebook screen to go dark and you have to reboot if you want to use the notebook's screen instead or with the desktop screen. Does this happen with the MBs now?

MacBook Pro :: Finding Unibody Casing Review And Reducing Heat Contents?

Jun 26, 2010

I'm in the market to buy my first MacBook pro 15" pretty soon and I want to get a case for it. Since the aluminum helps absorb heat from the internals, will a full coverage case cause it to heat up faster and ultimately overheat the laptop? Thanks.

Also has anyone ever had the X Gear Shadow carbon fiber case? Can you give me a quick review?

Windows On Mac :: Windows 7 64bit - Unibody MPB 15" - Media Key Invisible

Apr 24, 2009

Here's a new one for me. My 3 media keys don't work for any applications such as Windows Media Player, iTunes, Open Pandora. Everything else works though?!? I reinstalled the keyboard driver and there has been no change. It's like those keys are disabled. Pressing fn will let them use their typical F function, so they work, it's just being blocked by the BootCamp manager or something.

Something else - they keys are invisible to the OS. I can't use a 3rd party hotkey manager to just reassign them.

Applications :: Hotspot Shield Launches Automatically At Startup?

Jan 8, 2010

I have been using Hotspot Shield for a few years now, but the most recent update is for some reason causing it to automatically launch at startup (it has the Hotspot Shield logo in the menu bar).

I have tried looking at the the Startup Items list in System Preferences and looking at the preferences within the application itself. I cannot seem to figure out how to prevent it from launching automatically.

MacBook :: Getting Heat Up?

Aug 26, 2010

i think my macbook is running rather hot lately as I have the fan set at 6200(max) and it seems to idle at 50C and I had skype running with a few people and it was reaching 80C! It never used to get that high before! It is a Dec31st 06 (lol 1 day from 07) model and I do have the ability to open these models and apply the thermal paste again as I have done plenty times before and also fit Mac Pro serviceable options such as BT and AP

I know how to open it and clean it but theres no dust in it to make it that hot I might have to try max load and see if it overheats

MacBook Pro :: Where Does The Heat Disburse

Jan 13, 2011

I am designing a stand that will allow me to slide my Mac underneath my Dell U2410 basically. It will be made of wood, and the mac portion will be raised ~1" from the desk. The front and back will be open, and I'm also going to make slots for the optical drive as well as a hole in the left side for I/O. However I also want to make sure it doesn't get too hot. So basically I'm wondering if there is a central place where the heat essentially "exits?" I was thinking of putting a few holes into the board so that the heat could leave the stand that way...but any other ideas?

MacBook Air :: New MBA And Heat Fixing?

Oct 14, 2008

Once anyone gets to test the new MBA out (next month?), if you can please post the results on heat issues. Eg the initial MBA in many cases was only usable at 50% CPU/GPU (for more than a few minutes) due to heat issues. Does the new one fix it? If so, it is effectively more than double the speed.. more like 3-4x faster if that makes sense. If GPU is much faster AND heat issues are fixed, this could be a huge performance boost..

MacBook Pro :: Too Much Heat On My I7 MBP 15"?

May 14, 2010

I went in to the Apple Store yesterday to buy a MacBook pro 15". I currently have a 2009 13" MacBook Pro. I decided to go top of the line with the i7 even though the Apple Sale Person said I didn't need the speed. I wanted to not look back later and say I should have gotten the best. What I noticed last night was I had it on my lap on battery power doing my normal surfing. On flash sites it got a bit uncomfortable on my lap. About 70 degrees C. I have never noticed it before on my 13". Should I take it back for an i5 and would that make any difference or is all of this just normal for this type of computer?

MacBook Pro :: MBP Keeps Shutting Down By Itself Due To Heat?

Jun 6, 2010

I use my MBP (Unibody, 2.8Ghz, 4GB RAM, running 10.6) in clamshell mode connected to an Apple Cinema Display ... Been doing that for a year and a half now and never had any problems.Now, since a week or so, my MBP keeps shutting down randomly, probably due to heat issues.So I installed SMCFanControl and run it at max RPM. Still no help.My system reaches over 90?C before it shuts down.Now I disconnected my MBP from everything (ACD, speakers, external HD, iPhone dock, Ethernet cable) and when running on its own off battery power, the temperature has already dropped down to 60?C and it stopped shutting down.
