I have this problem where after I boot to the desktop, a (or several) fans in my laptop start spinning as if a heavy process is occurring. This lasts about 5 minutes. Oddly, the CPUs are both running at about 5-10% and the memory usage is ~400mb which is the stable usage that doesn't change if I leave the laptop on for 2 hours. So, in other words, nothing is happening but the fans are spinning like mad.
I've tested it on several operating systems:
No probem: Ubuntu 9.04, Windows XP
Problem: Ubuntu 9.10+, Windows Vista and Windows 7
This is the model of my laptop
Any help would be great,
Thanks in advance.
