My laptop seems to get very hot when running with Ubuntu. The vents aren't blocked and its got plenty of clear airflow when in use. It's noticeably hotter running Ubuntu than it is running Windows.
I haven't noticed any adverse hardware problems yet, but if it does get really hot it seems to become very slow.
- Is this likely to be due to Ubuntu or just coincidental?
- If it is Ubuntu is there anything I can do about it?
It's an Acer 5740g with an i3 2310m.
To add further detail, I'm running 11.10 x64 and the fans seem to run pretty much constantly.
