I need some help with powernowd. When it is running my fan almost never turns on and my laptop heats up like crazy, but if I turn off powernowd the fan is on almost all of the time and cpu is always set to 2.20 GHz. I was wondering if there was anyway I could edit it so that I can set the fan to turn on at a lower temperature while still having powernowd enabled. I have an AMD Turion 64 ML-40 processor, running 64-bit version of Ubuntu 8.10, there are no fan controls in the bios, there is nothing in the /proc/acpi/fan folder. If you need any more information from me just say so.
