Hi Guys, I tried the suggestion below and it didn't seem to change anything - I even set the same trip points to TZ1. The fans still seem to spin faster in Linux compared to Windows. Then the other issue is that I can't switch a fan off once I force it on.
Thanks, Pieter Show: cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ0/trip_points or change TZ0 to TZ1 For many HP notebooks first trip point is to low. To change manually, for example: echo "105:100:100:78:70:60:50" > /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ0/trip_points echo 10 > /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ0/polling_frequency Then I have: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ0/trip_points critical (S5): 105 C active: 78 C: devices=0xcf7aea40 active: 70 C: devices=0xcf7ae9dc active: 60 C: devices=0xcf7ae98c active: 50 C: devices=0xcf7ae93c [EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ0/polling_frequency polling frequency: 10 seconds -- Maciej Rutecki <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://www.unixy.pl LTG - Linux Testers Group (http://www.stardust.webpages.pl/ltg/wiki/) This e-mail is sent on the Terms and Conditions that can be accessed by Clicking on this link http://www.vodacom.co.za/legal/email.jsp " - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-acpi" in the body of a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
