I've been looking for some help regarding my T480s (have it since yesterday).
I installed Windows 10 Pro (incl. all updates) and I'm using it for simple stuff: Firefox, Office. That's basically it.
Unfortunately, it gets super hot while doing so. Firefox + Office = between 45 and 60 degrees Celsius.
When it comes to watching a stream (which I'm doing right now) - without any other window/application open - it comes to 65 to 80 (or even 90) degrees Celsius.
I don't know what to do. I checked the settings on Lenovo Vantage and it's already supposed to be the setting which takes care of the heating (and the fans) but it's still the same.
Am I supposed to change something in the BIOS settings?
Thanks for any advice! Really...

Here is a link to Laptop Magazine review of the T480s.
Note the comments on the heat question.

Thank you, I guess.
But the article mentions temperatures around UNDER 100 degrees Fahrenheit (no more than 37,8 degrees Celsius) and I don't even reach those results while not having any app running in the background.
Jesus, in the end it seems to be my lucky pick.

How is the fan responding to your temperatures?
Given you use the i5 Model without the MX150! I suggest there is def. something wrong with your notebook.
Since you mostly ruled out Software/Driver malfunction I would file a complaint with Lenovo to repair or replace (its basically new) your notebook.
The 480s has a dual heatpipe which should be more than capable of keeping your temperatures at a fraction of what you are experiencing.

thank you very much!
It seems like you've been quite right about that one - I even went to Lenovo's site and installed the BIOS update which was released a few days ago.
Do you think that I wouldn't have experienced that while using Linux?
I'll google my way through "deactivating background tasks" to achieve a proper state.
Any idea what's "normal"? What should the temperature be like? I'm currently running between 41 and 45 degrees Celsius while browsing (and a single Word document is open).
If all those things don't change the heat "issue", I'll get a new model.
Thank you very much anyway!
