I too am having a problem. It's gotten warmer than normal a few times, but last night was the worst. I normally don't have WiFi on, but had it on last night, then I plugges it in and went to bed. It was plugged in for about 8 hours, then when I went to pick it up, it was very very hot. I also noticed there was no lightning bolt over the battery indicator while it was charging. It's been about 15 minutes with no usage and WiFi off and It's down to 50% charge.
It was so hot, I could smell burning. Battery appeared normal (no bluldging). The fact that I could smell it buring was an immediate indicator that something was not right. Now my battery is draining super fast but it is cool to the touch. Even the trackball was too hot to touch.
Another note, when I unplugged it from the charger, the screen went white. That' when I did the battery pull and then put it back in. Normal temperature and operation now, but battery is draining fast.
I think I'll wait for the battery to completely drain, then pull again, and do a full charge. I hope this doesn't happen again, freaked me out.
