    Yeah, they're pretty high. If I were you I'd keep looking for a way to bring the temp down, but unfortunately I'm out of ideas!

    I would dart over to terminal and fire up "top" and take a peek at what is running. A better program that allow a bit more is "htop". Look for apps using large amount of resources.

    I've HP Pavilion dv6 laptop and for last 2 years I'm facing the over heating issue only in Ubuntu and its varients. On the same laptop with Windows 7 everything just works fine! Can you share your hard disk temperature as well? use hddtemp /dev/sda command... replace sda with your correct dirve location.
    I've tried various solution and I have found a workaround to it but before that please share your disk temerature, specially plug in the power connector and then observe the disk temerature every 5 min and then share the disk temerature.

    i checked top and it's as suspected, Firefox is responsible for 50% of my CPU usage. and it's usually with flash. i've noticed firefox is considerably worse than chrome on my laptop but I find this hard to believe seeing as how long firefox has been released and its default status with ubuntu's distro.

    Also I tried to run hddtemp and i got this sadly

    xx:~$ sudo hddtemp /dev/sda
    [sudo] password for xx:
    WARNING: Drive /dev/sda doesn't seem to have a temperature sensor.
    WARNING: This doesn't mean it hasn't got one.
    WARNING: If you are sure it has one, please contact me (hddtemp@guzu.net).
    WARNING: See --help, --debug and --drivebase options.

    Sometimes you just have to get desperate.

    I battled for long time to control the temps until I just got serious about it...

    It seems Linux just doesn't play well with some laptops.

    haha that's awesome. thing is i experience this with windows and ubuntu so i think it's a hardware issue honestly. i tried to open up my laptop but the last step of removing the motherboard was the hardest of all
