Ubuntu laptop running hot
I have a 3 month old Novatech core email@example.com, 4gb ram, 500g hdd and dedicated nvidia mobile graphics. I previously had windows 7 running on it which ran nice and cool and had ubuntu running as a vm on virtual box. Had no problems with that however now i have installed ubuntu to the HDD i have noticed that the CPU is running hot (using lm-sensors its reading 68C) and i get about 2 hours battery life compared to the 6 or 7 from windows 7?
Currently running 11.10 (64bit) have also tried LTS (64bit) and noticed the same results...
