Since moving to Fedora 16 my laptop has been constantly overheating. In
fact with the tracker-store taking up so much CPU it creates a perfect
storm and the system will sometimes shut itself off because of the high
heat in the CPU.

>From the logs:
[ 2718.556684] intel ips 0000:00:1f.6: MCP limit exceeded: Avg temp
9497, limit 9000
[ 2778.415413] intel ips 0000:00:1f.6: MCP limit exceeded: Avg temp

[ 2783.402899] intel ips 0000:00:1f.6: MCP limit exceeded: Avg temp

As well as:

above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 639)

I don't really know where to begin on this, I figure blame the kernel
:). Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Any tips for digging out the
root cause on this?

Thanks,
