Yup I just wrote about this in a separate thread...you have to wait until the phone cools down before you can raise it back up to 100%!!!...Has you phone ever overheated to the point that you can almost burn yourself? I've hit temp as high as 121!!!

How are you checking your temp? Mine gets pretty hot too, wondering if I got a lemon....

Can I ask what you are doing if anything to cause the temp to get so high? I have to admit I haven't been doing much calling or texting lately but do stream internet radio in the car and its alittle warm but nothing like this.

on the droid charge I believe if it gets too hot you can't charge it either, so I'd expect this to be the same.

As far as I know you have to be rooted but I have both SetCPU and CPUMaster, which is free on the Market

2x it was only charging, but both times i left the display on, but still that should matter, I should be able to leave it on all day and not EVER get past 105 at most!!! and the 3rd time I think I was playing NOVA 2, and when I got out of it, went back to my homescreen, left the phone and after about 2/3minutes it was blazing hot!
