    Question Toshiba Satellite M505 overheating problem

    I purchased new Toshiba Satellite M505-S4945 laptop and installed 64-bit Jaunty. Everything works great except that the fan cannot be turned on due to broken ACPI tables from Phoenix BIOS. The fan makes a big difference (40C vs 70+C).

    I found an omnibook module from sourceforge that is supposed to fix some issues with Satellite laptops, but I was unsuccessful compiling it, probably because the types of supported laptops do not include Satellite M505. I am not a developer nor a programmer, so I cannot fix the source code of omnibook module myself to add my specific model nor can I find it from terminal.

    I was wondering if someone has M505 and could resolve this ACPI issue or if someone had to modify the omnibook driver (attached below) to include a specific laptop model (I believe, it is in laptop.h file). I would greatly appreciate any advise.

    P.S. After my laptop woke-up from the sleep, the fan started working immediately, but now it just runs continuously (at least temp fell to 44C).
