I have an ASUS K56CM ubuntu 12.04 runs well, but the temperature in idle is about 55-65 °C. And also my battery have a half less life then on windows7. I tried Jupiter but it doesn't work. Should I try a another version of Linux?

You could try TLP and see if that improves your battery life and temperatures. I've observed almost a 2X battery life improvement on my Lenovo X131e running Kubuntu.
