CPU and GPU very hot even though idle
running High Sierra (thanks to http://dosdude1.com/)
MBP running very often hot, not overheating, just hot. Often even in sleep mode and most of the time when idle.
running minimal Debian 10 server (no graphical interface).
no aditional software installed - CPU is running on <1% and is 51°C warm while the GPU is 71°C hot.
Removed the bottom cover and touched the heat sink next to the fan - its burning hot. I never removed the logic board but blew the dust out just like this.
My conclusion: The problem is not with the OS but something with the system management or even hardware is wrong.
Does anyone of you have a idea what the problem could be?
I like to use this MBP as my home Nextcloud server but as long as it gets as hot as this it’s a total waste of energy.. I’m in Indonesia, its already warm enough in my house I don’t need a heater.
