i'm using dell mini 9 with the latest xubuntu 11.10. And the battery issue is driving me out of mind, the laptop gets SO hot that i cant even put my palms on the side. is there any fix for this? im thinking about downgrading to lucid or switching to chromeos

A simpler way to get the same result if to install the jupiter package. I have it on my Dell Duo and it works a treat.
