Re: [Bug 1074362] Re: [HP g6-2245sg] high core temperature cmakes fan run frequently, brings down time on battery


Sorry Christopher, but I can no longer do any tests on that notebook. 
It's not in my hands anymore.

  [HP Pavilion g6-2245sg Notebook PC] High core temperature makes fan
  run frequently, brings down time on battery

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This is a newly installed Kubuntu 12.10 on a new HP g6-2245sg
  notebook, dual boot with Windows 8 which was pre-installed.

  Under Ubuntu the cpu fan kicks in frequently even if the cpu is idle
  (according to various system monitors. The  HW temperature applet
  shows the temperature going up to 56°C, then the fan kicks in and
  brings it down to ca. 48°C. The fan stops until the temp is up again
  to 56°C, where it kicks in again etc.

  When booting Win8, the idle temperature is stable at 40 °C, and the
  fan never runs unless the PC is busy long enough that the core temp
  goes into the 50°C range, which only happens when playing videos etc.

  This is not only annoying because of the fan noise, but also reduces
  the battery runtime significantly compared to Win8.
