Laptop gets hot in comparison to other Distros

asked 2018-02-13 20:39:07 -0600

I'm using a HP 1000 Notebook. It has an Intel Pentium Processor B980 2.40 GHz and Intel integrated graphic card.

I used to run Ubuntu 17.10 and it never got hotter than 50 °C and with Fedora 27 it spikes at 80 °C. It's a "fresh" install, I only: Got RpmFusion, installed VLC, Discord, Atom and xsensor. Also ran dnf update when I installed.

One of the first things I install in a fresh Fedora machine is the thermald deamon (see thermald). Note that it is preinstalled in Ubuntu.

sudo dnf install thermald
sudo systemctl enable thermald.service

Restart your laptop. Probably, it will solve your problems.

When it was last time witch you check your Temperature with Ubuntu?. If its 2 Months ago maybe its time to open and clean air pipes of your laptop Are you try at least with an ubuntu live cd to see if temperature is still 50 C Are you tried to run "system monitor" and check CPU% of background processes
