Question about Apple iBook Mac Notebook
Quite common in all pc's. You can check the fan yourself. Disconnect all power sources including battery.
You'll need to earth yourself to prevent static discharge. (Loose copper wire, one end round your wrist the other attached to a radiator or water pipe)
Take any plates off the bottom of the laptop you can and clean our all the dust and fluff that's accumulated especially around the CPU and Fan area making sure all vents are clear.
If that doesn't work, you have to go a little further.
You'll need to purchase some heat sync compound/paste.
Remove the CPU fan and Heat dispersal plate.
You will probably see some dried up goo, that's the old heat sync paste, its been cooked. Clean it off the CPU and the heat dispersal plate, spread the paste on both the cpu and the heat dispersal plate to form a good interface and re-assemble.
For cleaning I use isoproprial alcohol, is softens without soaking and evaporates fairly quickly; and a soft lint free cloth.
Before you start have a look on You-Tube, it has loads of videos which will show you how to do it.

Shut down your computer and wait 10 seconds.
Press the power button.
Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold down the Shift key.
You should press the Shift key as soon as possible after you hear the startup tone, but not before.
Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple logo and progress indicator (spinning gear).
