I just installed Ubuntu on my HP Pavilion dv6-6c50ca, and I noticed that every time that I start my laptop with Ubuntu the fan runs really fast and the laptop produces a lot of heat. When I run windows on it, the battery life lasts for 4 hours but when I run Ubuntu, it barely lasts for an hour and a half no matter what I'm doing, even when I'm typing a simple word document. Here are my laptop specifications:
- HD BrightView LED-backlit Display
- Intel core i5 2.5 Ghz i5-2450M
- 750GB hard drive 5400RPM
- Video card: AMD Radeon HD 7690M XT
- Battery: 6-Cell Lithium-ion
Thank you for your help!
