I have this same problem with my laptop since, 9.04 ... Whenever I start working it hard .. for instance running a virtual machine, or something, the laptop overheats and shuts down automatically... notice that it runs fine on "Windows 7"..

my laptop

hp tx2510
AMD Turion Ultra X2 RM-80, 2.1 GHz, 64 bit
ATI HD3200

I tried to investigate this a bit, gone through installing powernow-k8 (didn't make much of a difference) .. lm_sensors is not able to see the board temperature sensors unless i disable the acpi in grub ... (acpi=off)

I want to help investigate this problem, in order to solve it!!!
