Mac Heat Problem and the Print Queue

For a few days now, I have noticed that my mac has been running very very hot.  Around 160 Degrees fahrenheit.

I noticed that the cpu is pegged.

I think since it is dual core the system doesn’t hang so it was not noticeable in regards to performance.

The culprit was the print queue. I killed it a few times and it came right back. I looked at the print queue and there were a couple of jobs stuck in there.

I deleted them and cpu went back down to normal.

I am already noticing a big difference in both temperature and battery life.
