    Ubuntu 12.10 and laptop overheating.

    Hi,

    I installed almost 15 different distros of linux and all they have the same issues: overheating and high power consume.

    My Laptop:
    HP G42-371BR
    AMD Turion II P560
    4Gb RAM
    HD 7200 rpm
    Dedicated graphic card: 6370m
    Onboard graphic card: 4250m

    Idle temperature on Windows: 45ºC
    Idle temperature on every linux distro: 62ºC

    Battery Windows (using 4250m video card): 2:45 hours
    Battery Linux (using 4250m video card): 1:20 hours

    I need linux for study, but i tried too much distros and had this issue.
    My actual distro is Ubuntu 12.10. I installed the AMD driver to controll the video cards but nothing change on temperature or battery...
    As the windows, the ubuntu 12.10 also change the clock at idle, from 2.5Ghz to 0.8Ghz to power save, but still hot and the battery duration never goes more than 1:20 hours.

    Someone can help me?

    Thank You!

    Marks suggestion does not help at all.

    i had a laptop that actually would power itself off after being on for a certain amount of time. turned out me removing the cpu and applying arctic silver thermal paste and reinstalling the CPU did the trick. it runs like a champ now and never shuts off and run great

    removing the cpu and applying arctic silver thermal paste and reinstalling the CPU did the trick
    ... and HOW exactly, is the OP going to remove the CPU on a laptop? Asking, because every one I've see (on a laptop) was nonremovable.
