    Haven't checked with windows, but when running ubuntu 9.10 my laptops harddrive runs at an alarming 62 degrees celsius, even when ldle...

    [Edit] After a bit of searching I found out that the maximum temperature its supposed to operate at is 60 degrees celsius. The disc I'm using is a Western Digital Scorpio Blue 320GB 5400rpm. I'm afraid this is just the kind of thing that might get me to leave Ubuntu behind, even though I really like it as an OS, I just don't think I'm willing to sacrifice my HD for it...

    I'll do that, once I've checked the idle temperature from another OS just to make sure that Ubutu is causing it.

    Will, however, probably buy a new HD soon. I guess I'll avoid Western Digital for the time being. Maybe a Seagate or Hitatchi, were I am, HD's aren't that expensive...
