OK, that is far too many typos, even for me...
"have you tried running activity monitor to see what process is running,
if there is one ? What you describe is not normal, for any OS version.
You (probably) have some process mis-behaving."
falling that, have you tried cleaning out your mac book of dust bunnies
etc. ? If you have never done it it is likely jam packed with dust and
this can have a serious effect on the cooling system, causing the fans
to run a lot more than then otherwise would.
