Over-heating CPU on 2.6.16 with Thinkpad G41

Last night compiling kernels in my hotel, my CPUs kept over-heating.

I have a IBM Thinkpad G41 which has a pentium 4 HT.

Before compiling, my CPU temp would start at 65C and go up to 82 before I
kill the compile. At 80 it warns me. I rebooted a few times, but it would
always happen. Thinking this might be bad hardware, I rebooted into
2.6.12, and saw that the CPU temperature would be at 52C?? I had no more
problems compiling.

I recently added the Suspend2 patch and that might be the culprit, But I
just booted, a version of 2.6.16 that doesn't have the patch, and it too
seems to be runnig hot.

Hmm, could this be the "acpi_sleep=s3_bios" that Suspend2 asks for?
I haven't removed that option yet.

Anyone else seen this problem?
