My Lenovo Ideapad U460 overheats even when I have 10% CPU usage while my fan is often on and very loud even while I'm using very low resources. Any suggestions?
I've been having this issue for a long time and just figured it's just how this laptop performs.
have you looked at the relevant wiki pages? Try lm_sensors to see why its running so much, maybe your temps are high. If so you can use laptop_mode_tools to see what can help.
There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots !
My temperatures are high, laptop easily overheats but I'll try out laptop-mode-tools.
