Hi Guys,

My powerbook's fan continually runs from startup to shut down, but not when asleep. Any ideas?

power manager reset

did you try resetting the PowerManager? I think that would control it. Try that.
You will have to lookup according to your model on how to do that.

Yup.

Yup, I tried it. It didn't work enough though it was a great idea, thanks. It really doesn't effect the function of the notebook, it's just annoying. Any other ideas? Thanks again!
