fan control in acpi


hi there:

having just learned about acpi and passing values into /proc files by doing:

PHP Code:
echo brightness> /proc/acpi/toshiba/lcd 
i can now finally change the brightness of my toshiba lcd.

my question is, i now want to shut down/control the fan by doing:

PHP Code:
echo running> /proc/acpi/toshiba/fan 
but this does not seem to shut down and fan. the fan on my laptop seem to run constently, is there a way to find out if its functioning normaly?

cheers

CHUN
