This is a classic indication of your coolant level being low. At idle, the level sit low and does not go thru the radiator for cooling, and when you accelerate, the coolant is pushed thru by the higher speed of the water pump.
It is also possible that you thermostat is stuck halfway, not enough to let the water thru at idle, but ok when driving.
I would like to comment on your cooling fans, make sure the fans are both working, the RAM air from driving may be cooling it enough when driving..
Hope that helps.
