They are designed to do this to dissipate the heat. If you need the machine to 
run with the lid closed, you need a PowerBook.

I don't think it's wise trying to find a way around it, since you will 
probably fry the machine (particularly as it seems to run much hotter whilst 
running Linux than OS X).
