    Got back from vacation today and started to play a Facebook game on my macbook air and for some reason, my fans in my macbook air went full power. When I play games like Sid Meier's railroad in the past, the fans never got that loud/fast.

    Should the fans on the MBA go full power or loud while playing a simple game like poker online?

    Should mention that the MBA was plugged in and nothing else was running in the background.

    When a thermal sensor hits a set point, fans are going to do their thing... Make sure the MacBook has clearance for airflow...

    Tried to make sure that where was airflow/space when it was on my lap. Maybe i didn't get enough. Thanks.

    Were you using Chrome? Most Facebook games are Flash based and Chrome is known for being a big resource hog especially with Flash. That could be the issue. But really it's a non-issue for the most part-the fans are doing what they are supposed to when it gets too hot. I know my rMBP fans really ramp up
    Sometimes when I'm doing video encoding and such.
