Default When I plug in my laptop AC adapter, my laptop overheats?

Hi guys, I've noticed that my laptop tends to overheat when I plug in my laptop AC adapter. When I just plug in my battery without the adapter on, it doesn't overheat. Why is that?

If you have a newer processor, the processor is running as it should normally do. Otherwise, when unplugged, it runs in an economy mode and throttles down the processors.
