I was thinking to come back to Linux after a few years break. To become accustomed with Linux again I installed fedora alpha on a Thinkpad T60p.
The biggest issue I have right now is the high temperatures I feel under my hands. Using Gnome and running konqueror (firefox doesn't start anymore after updating the system a few days ago), konsole and pidgin.
Running the "Hardware Sensors Monitor" I see temperatures above 60C, the highest being at GPU 73C.
I made the mistake of installing Adobe Flash and watching an online stream, then I could smell something burned and I had to power off the laptop.
Usually the left metal part under display (where the CPU is) is extremely hot. I don't remember having similar issues when I used Windows.
Any ideas on what to do to lower the temperatures?
