Is the system completely idle when it starts to heat up? Is it plugged
in to the AC adapter? What type of surface are you using the iBook on?

I have the same model iBook, and I only notice that it gets hot when I
am doing something processor intensive, such as compiling something, and
usually only when I have it on AC power. I also notice that it seems to
heat up more quickly when I use it on my desk, as opposed to when I use
it on my lap.
