When the power lead is plugged in click on the battery symbol in the lower right taskbar and select balanced.
The computer is set to run in high performance mode at present and will get warm.
When running on batteries only the balanced mode is set by default.
(I've got one of these)

Also make sure the vents on the bottom are not blocked.
Very easy to do if you're using it on your lap or on a bed!
Best to use it on a hard,flat surface.
