Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

System overheats every time it uses Flash, for example YouTube videos can't be watched without fan always on. No problem in Windows 7.

I don't want to disable fan.

I've Jupiter installed, set in "power saving" mode, but this didn't help.

Also, battery drain is outrageous, I guess it is due some of the drivers used by this laptop. any advice specificaly for this model will be appreciate, I'm scared to use settings for battery from other models, cause I'm not very experienced user.

Any help appreciated.
