I have a AMD turion x2 HP laptop. I used to run vista and it would warm up everyonce in a while.. and the fan would come on intermittently. In ubuntu it is running really really hot to the point the keyboard is heating up. cannot touch the bottom. The CPU is set to ondemand and it reads 500Mhz most of the time. going to system monitor I cannot find any process that is using up resources... is it something else? its not the fact that the fan is running continously.. its the fact it is heating up like this that concerns me.... any ideas?
