Hey, I have a mid 2010 MBP a1286, that I recently put a new SSD in and install Ubuntu 20.04 on.

I know that MBP tend to get hot, but I felt like mine was just getting way to hot, so I checked it with the sensors command in terminal after installing the necessary files.

That's besides the point, after I checked that, I wanted to see how the processors were running in the computer because it is running a lot nicer with the new SSD (the previous HDD was extremely corrupted and was getting worse).

Now here is the issue, when I checked it yesterday it was idling at like 87%!!!! I freaked out and meant to copy the terminal screen so I could post it, but I had to leave my house to go somewhere.

So I am just wondering if this is normal? I am assuming my computer idling this high is not normal.

Terminal: (from today)

It is a lot lower than the other day, it was almost at 90%.

Here is my temp readings also.
