"MacBook Air overheating and shutting down - what to do?"에 답변My “solution” is to disable Turbo Boost (using the free version of Turbo Boost Switcher). I guess that Turbo Boost was increasing processor speed (or the speed of individual cores) too much, leading to overheating. Since this was a recent development, I assume either a software update or some sort of slow degrading of hardware is to blame. Tim in the comments suggested that CPU failure could lead to overheating, so that’s a possibility. In any case, after disabling Turbo Boost I have not had any sudden shutdowns, sensor temps have stayed in a much more normal 50-75 C range, and the area above the CPU has not been burning my fingers. So this has solved my problem, with the obvious caveat that I now can’t benefit from Turbo Boost when I have a high load. Not perfect, but posting this in case it’s helpful to others. Thanks Tim and Casper for suggestions!
