CPU temp AC vs Battery

Hi everyone,

I've just noticed something very odd.  On my Dell D820 laptop, when 
running off AC power from boot, by idle CPU temperature sits around 58C.

If I unplug the power, and then plug it back in again, it will drop down 
to around 49-50C within a minute or two.  It will stay there.  With or 
without powerd running.

Here's some info:
