    I'm overclocked to 800mhz and lastnight I fell asleep and my phone is set to timeout every 1 minute but for someone reason it didn't timeout and I woke up 2 hours later and my phone was sooo ****ing hot that I thought the screen was about to start melting. It burned my hand when I picked it up. I would have check temp monitor if I wasn't so scared but I instantly turned it off and let it cool off for like 10 min then I turned it back on and suprisingly its completely fine.

    use the profiles that throttle the clock speed down when charging or when the temp is > than safe. works like a champ for me. 800mhz when i need it, 550 (or less) when i dont.

    And now you have learned your lesson...install setcpu, set it to go to 250 while sleeping and 550 when it reaches 48ÂșC

    Oh yeah and when your not using it, press the power button!!! It's not that hard! You might have an app keeping it from sleeping!

    The phone wasn't charging but I have it clocked to 250 when the phone times out but for some reason it didn't and I didn't know there is a profile for temp.

    I use screebl as well, and have my screen timeout set to the minimum 15 seconds. Yes, definitely set your profiles, however, jasonb mentioned the SetCPU profiles don't seem to be working with Taz's kernels and Bugless Beast.

    SetCPU does work fine with Sholes. Mine got up to 118 (battery) first night because I didn't have my profiles set right. After setting profiles it was fine.

    Of course now I don't have to worry about it all since I unrooted for the 2.1 update.:)

    So you're willing to risk not being able to root the device again?

    Are you kidding? I'm guessing within two weeks it's rooted again.

    Use Screebl like xrider says it will keep your screen off when you lay it down.

    I have Bugless Beast 7.5 at 1.0 Ghz and setcpu is working fine. My phone is running about 70 degrees when inactive. When I turn it on and start surfing, it jumps up to 90+ in a hurry. So the sleep profile is def working. That leads me to believe the other profiles are working too.

    I'm running Bugless Beast and I flashed Taz's kernel. SetCPU profiles working fine for me.

    Wireless worked fine, and the new temperature sensor works great. No issues!

    It will be rooted, but we don't have a clue as to how long it will take. Also, you will have to wait for the dev's to come up with a good, stable custom rom. For me it was a non-decision - do nothing. The custom roms provide everything I want this phone to be right now. When the 2.1 custom roms offer more (of the things that interest me), I'll swap then. If the 2.1 only offers visual gee gaws, I'll never change. But no unrooting here.

    I dont know man...cause Sholes wouldn't let me get over 950MHz, so I switched back over to BB cause I had ran BB that high for a week or 2 before I got Sholes...

    By putting in one of the kernels that go that high - Evilboot 1.1 or taz' 1.1, etc. They can be added to the custom roms. I tried Taz' 1.1 and 1.3 with BB7.4 but couldn't get them to work. I then tried evilboot1.1 and it wouldn't work either. I can run 1.0, but nothing above on my droid. :mad:

    I'm doubting this story.

    I've never ever had my phone heat up except when I was playing a very graphic intensive game (homerun baseball).

    I've had phones heat up, but "burning like the screen was going to melt", and then it was fine? something doesn't make sense here. I've never felt my Droid heat up from use, and I'm overclocked at 950 and use it all day and all night.

    I'd be interested to know what you guys have set on profiles.. I'm currently running BB latest version. I have my setcpu profiles set to:

    Charging 800/125
    Sleep/Standby 550/250
    Power<100% Disabled
    Failsafe Batt >40.0C 550/125
