This old computer doesn't support hibernate (safe sleep), which would be the only situation I'm aware of where an operational desktop would have the fans stop running while not in a shutdown (power off) mode. Both fans SHOULD be running in any mode other than a shutdown. If either stops, that's when you've got real problems.

It could be worth installing Hardware Monitor Lite, although I'm fairly sure the G3 models aren't exactly over-endowed with readable temp. sensors. If any temps returned are within normal parameters consistently, then there's probably little to worry about.
