System shuts down by it self, when cpu temperature reaches 57 C.I have an athlon 1.2GHz.For this cpu its kind of normal to work on those temperatures.In linux though,system keeps shutig down all the time due to this.How can i set it so that my system should shut down when CPU reaches for example 60 C?Suse 10.0 installed
Distribution: Linux Redhat 9.0, Fedora Core 2,Debian 3.0, Win 2K, Win95, Win98, WinXp Pro
I would first check your bios. On many systems, the shutdown is controlled by the bios and not the OS. I'm not a Suse guy, but I am not aware of anything in linux itself, that will cause it to shutdown via a cpu overtemp. The bios however will. Check it out.

That does not sound like it's normal to me. I've worked on several systems running the old Athlons at 1 - 1.4 GHz and never got a temp that high. At idle, with stock cooling, it should be in the 30's with maybe 50 at load. I'd check your heat sink/fan/air flow to make sure you're getting optimum cooling.
