Re: any thoughts on why cooling fan keeps spinning up and down?



"...new out of the box" does not mean "it works perfectly". And I don't see postings on this list from others with fan speed issues which would tend to indicate a repeatable software issue.

I'll look into this, thanks. On the other hand I've opened up enough
system cases (including laptops) and cleaned more than enough dust
bunnies or coffee spills to realize fan speeds can have very
physical causes indeed. Don't think of the fan as "just" controlled
by operating system software. There is usually a physical reason why
the speed varies and that ought to be the first thing to check
before suspecting the operating system.

   this behaviour has been there since day one of installing f11 beta
on this laptop, when it was new out of the box.
