my R61 Thinkpad by Lenovo is getting WAY too hot just with a basic ubuntu 9.04 idling...

its fans dont seem to really start up and it switched itself off due to heat a while ago. i am a bit concerned about using ubuntu 9.04 in this constellation. didnt have the problem with debian or older ubuntu releases
