    Tested omnibook with all ectypes, no immediate results.

    However, acpi_osi="Linux" on Lucid Lynx (32 bits) works. BUT, the trip points are still too low, idling at 60C, which still isn't good.

    Supposedly it has an instant effect.



    Windows runs between 35-45, so I think this should be our goal. Especially since Ubuntu normally uses less resources :)

    I see. I think 60C is too much. But if you idle after that, does it stay at 55C or 45C ?

    ACPI can be fully loaded except for the thermal functions. I've had some success with kernel option:

    thermal.off=1

    Unfortunately, it only turns on, at a low speed, when approaching 70C.

    So still no problem solved.

    Toshiba has a bios update app for Windows on their website. Version 2.30 is already available (and I already flashed mine).
    If you can't update, I'll be home thursday and will try them out.
