This is a new install of Ubuntu on my laptop.
Ubuntu has been shutting down with a thermal error even when the laptop is obviously cool. It seems to be shutting it down at about 70C.
I do have lm-sensors installed and when I type ´sensors´ at the prompt it returns with...
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +66.0°C (crit = +102.0°C)
temp2: +44.0°C (crit = +92.0°C)
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0: +67.0°C (high = +95.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
Core 2: +60.0°C (high = +95.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
Adapter: PCI adapter
Leading me to believe it should go to at least 100C before shutting off.
I HAVE INSTALLED psensor...which also shows the readings at round 70C...but its alert settings are set lower. I´ve changed those, but CAN psensor TURN YOUR LAPTOP OFF??
This is my work machine (I´m a developer) and I prefer to work in Linux than Windows...but I can have the machine shutting off unexpectedly.
