http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi All, The F17 installation on my laptop is causing my laptop to heat up a lot (even in idle condition)!:C With more heating the CPU fan keeps on running continuously and when running on battery it runs out of battery in about an hour. In my Windows 7 partition I get a battery life of over 4 hrs! :blink: I have gone through a lot of posts in different forums and got to know that this might be an issue with dual graphics (which is there on my laptop).
