Currently my CPU temperature as measured by lm-sensors increases by 1-2 C upto 4-5 C when I start a new process - like a video, music, etc. The change takes place in less than a second. Is this normal or should the change be happening more slowly?
If it is indeed happening too rapidly, what could be the likely causes?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 with Core i5 430M.
Edit: I should add that these are temperatures from an HP laptop (dm4t).
