I have a big problem.
My HP 8540w is switching itself off because it reached 100 C (at which point I think the BIOS declares it's too hot for safety).
It's pretty easy to get there. Just X can consume one cpu for 2-3 min and that's all it takes to reach 100 C.
I see that ubuntu comes with no power management out of the box (ie, power profiles, where one can say 'throttle all you can, I'm on battery). The closest thing I could find is a 3rd party tool called jupiter. Still, on medium settings I get the shutdowns.
Any idea what to do next? This comp. ran windows before for 1 year, and this never happened.
