Hi dear friends i have absolutely new notebook and a new ubuntu desktop 10.04.

but something wrong maybe it must be like this i dont know.
1. when i had a windows 7 i worked on battery during 3 hours. but now i can work on battery only 1.5 hours. it happened after installing and using ubuntu...maybe i must tune it but HOW?
2. the cooler is working very hard and very noisy it happened after installing and using ubuntu too.
compare to windows ofcourse.
so what i can do about this?

is it possible that i have incompatible drivers? what other problems it may couse?

about my asus:
intel core i3 350M.
3gb ram.
ATI Mobility Radeon HD4570, 1024 мб

thanks for attention. i know my questions are very general but i want to learn :)
