I have recently switched from windows to linux, the overall experience was good but UBUNTU 13.04 hogs up my resources and heats up the CPU more then my earlier windows7.Also the battery backup has reduced significantly

I am a big believer in free and open source S/W please help to sort out this issue so that I do not have to go back to WINDOWS.

Could you edit your question and add the specifications of your system? CPU, GPU, RAM, HDD, etc. –  Braiam Sep 21 '13 at 19:30
