How to identify programs causing an MBA to overheat?
Yesterday my girlfriend's MBA was overheating horribly (98 degrees celsius - enough to be worried about the chips melting the solder holding them in). Turned out the culprit was Word, which had hung.
However neither CPU was showing it as taking up any activity %age (which is the main identifier for these things on on Windows). I only found the issue by chance, which ideally isn't something I want to do.
So, question: What's the best way to identify which software is causing an MBA to misbehave, when CPU looks fine on top, but is clearly having problems?
Is this a good question?
