Laptop, just browsing, using internal Intel graphics (have Nvidia Optimus) and CPU set to powersave with Jupiter. I'm IT-supporting my parents' laptop with old AMD processor running Windows Vista - it's an oven by comparison. Oh, Nvidia Optimus looks good. That may plus Jupiter may do the trick. I ...

Re: Laptop overheating problem with Mint 14 using Cinnamon

Guys, I'm on Linux MInt 14 Live CD right now, installing it after blowing on all the fans of the laptop (not just the sidefan, as I did before). Apparently it worked. It is intalling the system (pretty heavy load, CPU usage is around 80%) and I'm getting 69 degrees at the moment. Hell of an improvem...

Re: Laptop overheating problem with Mint 14 using Cinnamon

I'll try now installing proprietary drivers, but last time I tried, it got quite messy with my dual screen configuration. I shall report here when I'm done... joa...

[SOLVED] Laptop overheating with Mint 14 using Cinnamon

Hello, I'm a new Linux Mint user but an old Linux user (5+ years). I've installed Mint 14 with Cinnamon on my Lenovo 645 laptop (3GB ram, dual core processor, ATI 4xxx series). I'm in love with Cinnamon, and overall Mint reminds me of the firsts Ubuntu(s) I was happy with (Oh, 8.10, how I miss you)....
