response to Brian1 re CAT command
After entering the command, the response I got was OFF. Just out of curiosity I tried FN + F9 (Function key + F9 - activates fan in Vista) and ran the command again. It responded with ON (I assume that the fan is now actually turned on - correct?). However, trying it again just gives a response of ON. No ability to toggle that way.
I see with this command that as a default (correct?) that the fan is set to OFF. I'm glad I know as I am concerned about frying the innards of my laptop.
Ideally, I'd really like puppy to monitor (and report) my laptops temperature and show me visually the temperature and whether or not the fan is running, as I can't tell if it's on, even when it is running, as the heat exhaust is non existent.
Can anyone help with this?
