comment Dell XPS 15 runs hot on linux
HOW IT WENT: I set up another box with ubuntu and right after logging in my laptop temperature was already at 95°C, first thing I did was try the ACPI module again, what the posts in the answer doesn't mention is that you may need to add permission to the scripts, so I did chmod +x ./test_off.sh and sudo chmod +x /proc/acpi/call right before using the command my full battery would say '1:22mins left', it jumped to '2:22mins left' after, and temperature seems its going to be stable at 64°C now(it would never go below 74°C before)
