I just changed distros, I am Noticing that the fan is switching on more frequently and is also running whenever the circuits get hot and stopping when it thinks it's cool enough to resume work. I guess this is a way to conserve batter (even though my experience with Linux on Laptops shows that a fan constantly running doesn't take much battery power for what I use it for). A change in distro seemed to be the best thing to do and all I have left to do is wait for the one I was using earlier to catch up to most recent laptop builds.
