I too am now set up with dual booted 64 Bit versions of Vista Ultimate and Ubuntu. For those unfamiliar with my "problem" (yawn) I have to use a Sony Ericsson USB broadband modem to connect here (no cables) and none of the local likely lads are prepared to script anything else for it other than Ubuntu. I must say that the 9.04 is a great leap forward from the distro I viewed a while back but straight away I've encountered an issue I can do without. My temps with Vista are around 36/41/39 for CPU, North bridge and HD. With Ubuntu they are all way higher, my CPU not dropping below 54c. I've since discovered lots of posts about this with no real fix being offered. It seems to be an Ubuntu specific problem. I'm not sure if it also extends to Kubuntu which would be an alternative for me but I'm not prepared to fry my new mother board because the ambient temperatures here are high enough as it is.

Anyone here got any ideas?
