Hi there,
ubu is making my fan come on (loud) a little too often. Should I disable compiz and emerald and stuff? :(

Some time ago my fan would become loud under load with Ubuntu and eventually the laptop would shutdown without warning. After cleaning the dust from the fan it did not get loud any longer as speeding up of the fan would actually cool things. Less noise, no shutdowns.
