Upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04. Running much hotter and fan running at high speed all the time. Even with no open programs. Cpu under 10%. I did kernel 5.6.7 update. Still the same.

Any suggestions?



Problem was my Tresorit client service (cloud backup software).

Heynnema, thanks so much for the help. I was able to narrow down the problem from your suggestions. I installed the Simple Monitor widget (like vitals I guess). This showed me that one of my CPU cores was running maxed at 100% constantly. Using task manager I identified the Tresorit to be typically utilizing the most CPU. After closing the task, my laptop returned to a normal temp of ~55C.
