Question Monitoring and control of ACPI/proc. scaling?

Hey All:

I've finally gotten my system up and running to my liking with the help of many of you from these forums. It's a Gateway 450XL running Slack 9.1/2.6.1 kernel. I have ACPI built into the kernel, as well as Speedstep support for the Pentium M (Centrino). I'm curious how I should go about monitoring temperature (just to make sure), as well if there was a way I could have control over the fans and the processor scaling (the proc. scaling is perhaps the most important, so I can conserve battery power).

Thanks in advance,
