Not Too Much Mustard on That Ferrari Please

My Acer Ferrari 3400 cannot go through an OpenSolaris installation without overheating and powering itself down.  Because OpenSolaris has no power management for this laptop, the CPU runs at 100% clock rate 100% of the time, which isn't a problem for other OSs.

Luckily, the Ferrari has no problems sharing a cramped space with mustard, pickes, left-over Chinese food, and a beer.  Ferrari 3400, meet OpenSolaris 2008.05:

Gee, all I have is an Apple[tm] on my MacBook Pro...

Pretty warm Apple, tho. Running Sun xVM VirtualBox on a Mac OS X host with an OpenSolaris guest can definitely heat up. Then again, it's not nearly as hot as when a WinXP Professional guest is running.

Maybe I'll run upstairs and grab that jar of cold pickles...
