    Power managment -- fan noise Asus U31

    Hi everyone.

    I have an issue with my new Asus U31SG. I couldn't find any similar issue on the web...

    My fan spins a lot, a bit noisy, but most importantly, it makes the touchpad zone vibrate, and is like uncomfortable.

    I saw
    and followed the instructions, but don't know how to interpret the results nor how to improve on the power management. I suppose there's something wrong with my laptop power configuration!

    Here's what I did:

    Installed powertop-1.13

    Run ~$ sudo powertop-1.13 -d -t 60 > powertop.log

    Got the file powertop.txt (attached).

    Then, installed fatrace

    Run ~$ sudo power-usage-report

    And got the report filed in power-usage-report.txt (see attachments)

    I have no idea what to do with them, and I don't know how bad those numbers are!

    Help much appreciated folks!
