1) Done
2) "qcontrol fanspeed stop" makes the beeping stop

It's not part of the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (3.0) but at least I can 
confirm that this directory exists in CentOS and Fedora, too, containing the 
files "grub" and "useradd".

Creating /etc/qcontrol.d/90-no-fan.conf with the content above makes the

Maybe it's a good idea to overwrite the temp() function in 
/etc/qcontrol.d/90-no-fan.conf, too? It could create a log entry if the

too hot!?
