The heat issue is the way the CPU frequency scaling daemon works.... When you're plugged in, it sets your CPU to max, and when you unplug it, it usually lets it scale down as needed.

I would recommend asking on the Ubuntu forums how to change the scaling behaviour, as I use neither Ubuntu nor the software that Ubuntu uses to manage scaling.

And what chipsets do your wireless and wired NICs use?

Also; What version of Ubuntu?
