Hi people!

I recently started using linux Linux Mint 6.I installed this on my laptop but now it always work's in maximum, fans in maximu speed and processor frequency in maximum too .. I would like to no if these is a software to "relax" or something to mange the power using of my laptop, because given his age (4-5 years) he suffers a lot of overheating and the battery does not last long.

My laptop:

Type "top" (without the quotes) in you terminal and see which application is using too much ram or memory.
Then try closing or removing the application and see if things get better.
