View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 9.04 abruptly turns off computer

January 18th, 2010, 03:45 PM
Hi mates,

I have an 9.04 installation of Ubuntu.
After a classical system update via the GNome-GUI my computer (laptop ASUS PRO55series) got the sick habit to turn off abruptly during work. It's like if there were no electricity in my house.

It is not the hardware since I also have windows vista and it works fine.

I suppose this is from ubuntu; it could be from the heat regulation, that ubuntu thinks it is too hot inthere and just turns off the laptop.

My kernel is 2.6.28-17-generic

Can somebody help me?

Is it hot underneath when running Ubuntu compared to when running Windows?
