Reduce buzzing in certain MacBook and MacBook Pros
Authored by: silentcrs on Sep 10, '07 01:56:19PM

I question why anyone would want to give the CPU tasks while idle. The whole point of going idle is to save battery life and reduce wear and tear (in this case, heat) on the CPU. I consider myself to have average hearing and the "hum" is no worse than countless other consumer electronic devices I've worked with.

Methinks some Mac fans are too anal. :P

I'm guessing you are not using one of the affected units.
I've not experienced anything like the noise my MBP makes.
