Hello I am new to Linux and using Edubuntu 12.04 lts 64 bit from past 7 days, on my laptop( asus k53sv. core i7,8gb ram,750 gb , nvidia gt 540 m.) I have managed to solve nvidia's optimus driver problem (over heating in Ubuntu) using bumblebee and its quiet stable now with 49-55 deg c processor temp, The only problem is with my hard disk it seems like overheating while i am using Ubuntu, with windows 7 its running cool @34-36 deg c, but when ever i am switching to Ubuntu its like 40-44 deg c. I read in some pages that Ubuntu may harm laptop hard drive and battery status. the problem is about "Load Cycle Count" is that so??
please please please tell me if there's any way to solve this hdd overheating problem ? or i should avoid Ubuntu for my laptop ???
p.s i am using Edubuntu 12.04 64 bit lts.
