Hi folks,

i'm writing a daemon to control the fans in MacBook 5.1. I have searched for information of the locations of the sensors and the fans, but come up empty.

I have seen some scripts that read a couple of sensors and average the temperature, but find that it does not work that well.

Any information on this subject would be most useful.

Thanks,
Mike

Well, I'm guessing you've seen this before, but such a program already exists.

Thanks, but it's an OSX app only. I'm doing a similar thing for Linux.
