Hi there,

when i'm running GOS (ubuntu 8.04.1, 2.6.24-19 kernel) the cpu temperature is around 46 degrees when idle
in intrepid its 56 degrees when idle.
Both temperatures are taken at power save mode

why is there such a great difference in temperature?

strangely, the battery life is shown to be longer in intrepid, even though it seems to consume more wattage than in GOS.
