Overheating Issues Acer Travelmate 5740 & no Wireless

So my Acer Travelmate 5740 with Waldorf 64bit is getting really hot and shuts down (instant poweroff) all the time after 1-2 hours with some browsing tabs open, sometimes even when I put something under it to have better ventilation. fan runs all the time.. this thing has 4 processors, which seem to work always. tried 2 other distros, same heat problems..  googled a bit and searched the forum but have no idea what to do -

I tried this: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=23445

oh, and the wireless is not detected in crunchbang either.. (it works fine in mint and porteus)

here is the output of uname -r and lspci -knn

pretty impossible to work on this machine under these circumstances -- any ideas appreciated..
