I'm running arch on a T60 core duo. I am monitoring temperatures of the CPUs with Kima.
Whenever I come back from standby (suspend to RAM), the second CPU always shoots up in temperature. Right now, I have CPU0 at 120F and CPU1 at 156F. I am using powersave with kpowersave and cpufreq. All the frequency scaling is working correctly after resuming, with both running at 1ghz. Any idea on why there is such a discrepancy in temperature?
I don't know where those disrepancies come from, but I think it's normal. My X2 cores have different temperatures too.
Core0 Temp: +25°C Core1 Temp: +32°C
But the strange thing is, they are always the same temperature before suspend-to-ram.
Must be some type of incorrect reading by acpi in the kernel. A reboot shows normal temperatures again within a minute, so I am thinking that after suspend-to-ram the reading of the temperature is incorrect. Annoying, but I can live with it.
