I'm running a Dell XPS 13 under Ubuntu 18.04. Dell Bios Version is 1.4.0.
Without running anything core intensive --- i.e., I'm just doing word processing and looking at the web (not running videos etc)---the laptop is hot enough that the fan is constantly running loudly. The heat isn't bad enough to cause a shutdown or any kind of malfunction, it's just that the fan noise is very disturbing.
Is there software that I can run to either reduce power usage, or by some other method cool down the machine?
Other threads about overheating don't seem to be applicable, since they are much older
