View Full Version : [ubuntu] Jaunty runs hot on MBP compared to OSX

August 5th, 2009, 04:23 PM
I configured the fan and temp settings according to the wiki (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro5-1_5-2/Jaunty#Sensors), but my unibody 17" MBP 5-2 runs much hotter in Jaunty than it does in OSX. The main part about this that bothers the user is that one's left hand becomes quite hot as it rests on the computer while typing. Anyone else had experience or solutions in this regard? How can I test the sensor/fan configuration to ensure that it is working?
