I have a HP Compaq 8510p laptop that I just installed OpenSuse 11.2. Since I had it running, the laptop runs noticebly hotter than when in windows - even under very little load, basically web surfin. It gets so hot it makes my hands sweat! The fan also runs a bit louder and it always spitting out hot air. Ive done a little research and haven't come up with much.
I wonder why when I am using Ubuntu, my laptop temperature increases. It's around 62 degrees or less. I am already using Jupiter and have set it to power saving mode but if I use maximum performance the temperature can reach 70 degrees or more.
Just curious if anybody else experienced some issues with increased power consumption with the updated kernel 3.9.5 from Slackware current ?
After a clean boot power consumption/internal temperature are in the same levels like with 3.8.x kernel. However after a suspend/resume cycle, powertop shows consumption gets almost doubled (from 8W to 15W).
I have a Dell Latitude E6400 (intel cpu etc) that I dual boot with WinXP sp3 (ugh, needed for work). Both XP and Slackware64-14.0 (kde and/or Xfce) have always matched in reporting battery life - starting at 100% and about 2-4 hrs of life, now a bit longer since I swapped in a SSD drive, depending on screen brightness, wifi etc usage.
Hiit is possible to put the temperature of the laptop in the system info on the right ? And btw where i can edit stuff for it ? If not then which app can check the temperature ?Another thing, both with installed crunch and live cd, if I click on panel doesnt happen anything why ? bugged ?thanks
