http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, Just this weekend, I got rid of the Windows 7 on my x201 and installed F17 onto it. Back then when I did use Windows 7, I ran a lot of tasks, and programs and they darn thing never got hotter than "room" temperature. However, when I got F17 up and running, even something as simple as using firefox and terminal can send to machine into temperatures that are too hot to touch. I saw the thread that dealt with AMD/Radeon graphics fixes, I was wondering if there is one similar to that for the Intel. Could it be the graphics driver? The fan that is not responding?
