[possibly valid but upstream]Serious overheating in a laptop

Not sure if it is a bug or an error but possibly apps like powernowd, speedstep_centrino or cpufreq_powersave should be installed by default in a laptop
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

well powernowd doesn't seem to have any effect on my overheating (I reckon it's probably the thermal paste on my graphics card, since lm-sensors doesn't work)
