I really want to ditch Windows especially with their current Win 10 shenanigans and am loving Linux, but can't find a solution for the overheating on my laptop. I've installed the various sensor and battery monitor to switch between performance and power-save, but nothing seems to make any difference, my temps slowly creep up until it feels like you can cook an egg on my keyboard, even when reading a page on Firefox. I've tried Top in Terminal but nothing seems resource hungry.
I'm aware my laptop does need a clean, but I get absolutely no issues when using Win 10 unless I'm doing lots of photo editing.
I ran Sensors and pasted in the results at the bottom, I've been using Mint for about twenty minutes and it's already prepping to cook my dinner.... (And the fan is preparing for lift-off)
