I should have explained better.  I've read the ACPI guide and set Gentoo 
up accordingly - and under normal usage the temperature is OK.  However 
if I start doing anything stressful, like compiling - that's when I end 
up creeping towards 80 degrees and possibly beyond (I daren't let it get 
any hotter).

I do a lot of software dev, and a lot of compiling under win32 - but I 
never encounter this problem.  Even if I set the processor to high 
performance (I use SpeedSwitchXP under Win32), the temperature is always 

I'm scared ;-)
