what i'm asking is, is the fan connected directly to your power supply or is it connected to your motherboard? if it is connected to your power supply without going through your mother board, then it wil run constantly, otherwise the bios will control it

1. Is APM or ACPI turned on in the BIOS
2. Is the kernel loading the drivers for various bits:
lsmod | less
Look for 'thermal', 'fan', 'processor'.

Useful tools include:
acpi (dislpay info)
acpid (control power management)
acpitool (play with power settings)


We may be able to identify some of your controller chips and any special software needed if you post the output of:
lspci -v

Did you check the BIOS to make sure ACPI is turned on?
