Solution for Laptop heating problem on linux/ubuntu

It was being very difficult for me to switch from windows to linux/ubuntu as my laptop fan go crazy on the ubuntu platform. The heating of cpu was terribly high.
After a long struggle, I found some solutions for the heating problem with my laptop[hp].
1. Use jupiter in power saving mode.
-jupiter not only gives you the power to use your cpu in your desired mode, it also supervises your cpu temperature. It helps to monitor your laptop temperature.
2. Disable your graphic card.
-You can disable your graphic card, this was the best solution for me get hold of my computer and control the heating.
Use the following command.
$ sudo su
- # echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

First login as root in terminal and then turn off secondary card. If after some time fan turns off.

Hope this will help.
