I'm running a Dell Precision M65 (Dual 2 Core 1,83 Ghz) and recently
switched from Ubuntu to Debian etch 4.0 (stable).

uname -r >> 2.6.18-4-686

I've noticed that the cpu gets hot, around 50 C -- the temperature in Ubuntu
7.04 was about 42 C.

Any ideas about why is happening this?

Thank you very much!
