I have a little bit of a problem, my laptop overheats on ubuntu while playing anything that is even remotely resource intense, i.e. Minecraft. So I checked my idle temperature, and I am quite shocked. For some reason on 12.04 and 12.10, my laptop is idling at 71 degrees Celsius! That is wayy too hot compared to what it idles at on windows, 55 degrees Celsius. My processor I know for sure has been clocked at close to 110 degrees Celcius when playing Minecraft for 30 minutes on Ubuntu 12.10, but on 11.10 I never had any problems. I would like to keep Ubuntu 12.04/12.10 if at all possible, but I have no clue what to do about the overheating problem, since it is only on Ubuntu and not windows.
Here is my output of sensors
(Remember, that is at idle)
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1: +71.1°C (high = +70.0°C)
(crit = +115.0°C, hyst = +115.0°C)
What do I need to do to fix this problem?
