comment Why does my laptop overheat and discharge faster in Ubuntu than Windows?
Although I don't understand the internals enough to change them, I believe it has to choose with the optimizations done in the linux kernel. You can either optimize for 1)speed or for 2)battery usage/power consumption. The linux kernel being optimized for speed often outputs a lot of heat. You can install specific software to help but thats the gist
