Laptop, Kernel 2.6.5, and ACPI
I've recompiled kernel 2.6.5 and included ACPI in order to monitor power of my laptop; however, I've noticed that my fan runs much more frequently in linux than in windows when dealing with power management.
Obviously, the amount of power or processor usage is not being regulated as in windows since the fan is needed to cool the system more frequently.
Are there any programs that I should be aware of to control settings such as this?
