This all sounds very unlikely to be Python's fault...
the only thing that I can imagine is that
1) your computer's cooling is broken (bios/fan troubles?), and;
2) the particular python program you're running has
    a loop that eats up 100% cpu time, which causes
    your machine to overheat.

Try using top (linux) or task manager (windows) to find out
if so, and what is eating 100% cpu?
