Can you please instruct me on how to modify critical trip points. My computer keeps shutting down and my sensors are telling me that I am running hot when utilizing demanding programs. I am utilizing Ubuntu 12.10. Thank you.
From my understanding, you can't modify the critical trip point - if you were to increase it to stop your machine shutting down then you risk damaging the silicon. The sole reason for the critical trip point is to avoid permanent damage of the system due to thermal overrun.
