An update to dim the sleep LED at night runs the fans full speed while updating. My quiet iMac sounded like it was preparing for take off. Apple must have a reason for this, does anyone know?

No idea what the reason might be, but you're not alone.

On the Apple iMac board, a user has reported that "During the [sleep light update] install your fans will run at full blast for about a minute. Then they will go back to normal and you will need to reboot again."
