Hmmm, strange, I thought kernel could do it.
I mean, when this laptop had Win Xp, as soon as the OS come up, the
When I installed Gnu/Linux it keeps the cooler on. I thought it could be
somehow managed by kernel because I saw somethings about thermal_trips
points which would allow me to say what to do , turn cooling active mode
on and off, based on the current temp of system.
The problem is only that when I turn my computer on, kernel, or maybe
acpi doesn't check that and the cooler keeps on.
