Comment 0 for bug 563156

On Karmic (2.6.31 kernel) my laptop ran silently (no fans unless really put through its paces), had long battery life (3.5 hours), and was cool.

Since upgrading to Lucid beta-2, it runs hot, the fan is always on (from cold start it's off, but quickly comes on and stays on) and battery life is less than 2 hours.

Lucid Kernel: 2.6.32-20-generic #30-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 12 15:20:57 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Laptop: Dell Studio 1555 with ATI graphics (but using OS driver).

Happy to help try things -- be great to get my laptop working properly again!
