My PlayBook overheats when it is charging but only when I am using it. Is it becuase it is using a lot of power or something, is it known to do this?

Define 'overheating'. Mine gets really warm if the rapid charger is plugged in and I'm playing a video intensive game while also connected to the internet.
This appears to be normal. I can cause it to heat up even more if I change the General mode setting from Default to Showcase then run multiple apps at the same time. But at no time does my PB 'overheat'. It just gets really warm.

I have 3 playbooks at home and none get too hot to the touch when charging and playing, they do get warm though.
Do you have a temp probe so you could see how hot it is getting?
