Bug Description

When running Linux Mint 12, this laptop runs very, very hot (a good 30 degrees hotter than when running Windows 7).

I can hear the fans running much louder/faster than when on Windows.

The issue is actually resolved by using the latest version of the AMD proprietary drivers. While testing with the discrete graphics enabled was minimal, using the Intel chip provided low temperatures and longer battery life.
