http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm running 12.04 with Gnome Shell on a Samsung NC10, and my computer is running hot as hell. Because I have the option to dual boot (though I almost never use it) I've booted up in Windows too, for comparison. Ubuntu: 78 Degrees Celsius (after 20 minutes from a cold start) XP: 57 Degrees Celsius (after 20 minutes from a cold start) After looking around on the internet, it seems that my model usually runs at about 35-38 degrees. So both of my values are quite high, which leads me to believe this is at least partially a hardware problem. But still, that extra 20 degrees is killing me...c (Hardware)
