That's a good idea.

I confirmed that the right driver is loaded:

Code:
felipe@felipenbk:~$ cpufreq-info 
cpufrequtils 008: cpufreq-info (C) Dominik Brodowski 2004-2009
Reporte erros e bugs para cpufreq@vger.kernel.org, por favor.
analisando o CPU 0: <- SAME WITH CPUS 1, 2 AND 3.
  driver: intel_pstate
  CPUs que rodam na mesma frequência de hardware: 0
  CPUs que precisam ter suas frequências coordenadas por software: 0
  maior latência de transição: 0.97 ms.
  limites do hardware: 1.20 GHz - 3.20 GHz <- CORRECT.
  reguladores do cpufreq disponíveis: performance, powersave
  política de frequência atual deve estar entre 1.20 GHz e 3.20 GHz.
                  O regulador "powersave" deve decidir qual velocidade usar
                  dentro desse limite.
TobiSGD, I'm sorry to ask you a newbie question like this, but how can I avoid Gnome to be loaded (run terminal only)?

You can either shut down the graphical system
Code:
service gdm3 stop
or reboot the system and boot it in single user (aka recovery) mode.
I am assuming that Debian uses the gdm3 display manager here, I am not sure about that. If you rather use KDE or XFCE it may be kdm or xdm or maybe lightdm.

TobiSGD,

Well... it's something else. Right now I'm on Gnome writing this, with 52C on both cores, and the fan is working normal. Besides that, I have a dim monitor with a non-responsive brightness control (bug well reported over the internet, present on Kernels 3.9+). Well, I think I'm going back to Windows 8, at least on my notebook. I can't loose all my battery on a crazy fan

If you know another way of solving this, I can try it.

P.S.: It is really quiet right now. Seems normal, like magic. But that fan will eventually go haywire.

For screen brightness:
Code:
 echo -n 0 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
to
Code:
 echo -n 8 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
Try other distros like Puppy! (or Fatdog for 64-bit)

"The real Puppy, the mascot for Puppy Linux, was a very tiny dog, a Chihuahua, but totally fearless. He didn't seem to know that he was vulnerable because of his small size. Once when my sister was visiting my country property, she brought her Blue Heeler, a very solid middle-sized dog named Muti. We were out walking, and suddenly there was a substantial rustling of branches of a large bush, something was in or behind the bush. Muti took fright and ran back behind the legs of my sister, whereas Puppy got into launch position in front of the bush and barked furiously. It turned out to be my dad playing a trick on the dogs. Puppy used to chase kangaroos and other big wild animals. Anyway, Puppy Linux is like that, reckless, unshackled, in memory of the mascot." - Barry Kauler

It's the same code?

EDIT 1: Brightness file contains "99".
EDIT 2: No response from the system. I think that they're working on solving this.

you may need to install tools for some like xbacklight

BRIGHTNESS ISSUE:
Fixed it by following your suggestion, but adding that brightness level to another file:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/28917...n-n4010-laptop

FAN PROBLEM:
Persists.

I'm back on Windows 8. To be honest, against my will. I really would like to make Debian work on my notebook.
So, in order to help others finding a solution for this, here follow some procedures that I've done:

My notebook: Dell Vostro 3560
Intel i5-3230M 2.60 Ghz (Turbo Boost 3.20 Ghz)
3rd generation Intel HD Graphics 4000

- booted on terminal only (no display manager);
- killed a lot of applications;
- upgraded to 3.9, 3.10 and 3.11 kernels;
- updated BIOS (A13 to A15).

Nothing worked. The fan still runs on high speed with both cores on 39C ~ 40C.

If anyone knows a solution for this, I would be grateful.
