Thanks, James, this has been a wake up call. Temperatures have dropped by almost 20 C when idle and a whopping 30 C when watching 720p video. My laptop's life time has been extended by many, many years. Thanks! EDIT: I even get to hear my hard disk being active now because the fans don't need to run at maximum speed all the time!
    Yea!!!!, we got to the bottom of the problem. I can tell you that there are many people that just do not realize the dust build-up problem that can occur and that using some sort of compressed air is required to fix. It is further compounded in that Windows, for what ever reason, may be able to handle the situation better. Yet, dust build up will at some point take down any OS you load and cleaning it out will make every OS work better. And of course, we know if the heat gets too high, real damage can occur.
    I can't thank you enough for coming back and letting everyone know the real issue and that we must have another satisfied customer here in the openSUSE forums!

    Thank You,
