I have a Dell Studio 1558 i7 laptop with Web Design suite CS5 installed. It normally sits happily at a core temp of around 60 degrees C. When I synchronize files in Dreamweaver the core temperature spikes to about 90 degrees C!! My laptop has now started hanging when synchronizing. It has got to the stage where I am finding if difficult to keep up to date with work for my clients.
When uploading and downloading files with FileZilla I don't get a spike at all. What is Dreamweaver doing to create this core temperature spike. Is there something (a setting) I can turn off that would prevent this from happening?
Can you try this out and see if it helps? Just for your information, a lot of memory and CPU related issues were fixed in the DW 12.1 update for CS6.
