That was one of the reasons that kept me using XP on my older laptop.

The only OS that could properly support the laptop was the XP OEM version that came with it. Every other OS version, even Windows, had problems with the laptop.

The fan would just work at 100% non stop. ;)

for me booting with the kernel boot option acpi_osi="Linux" would "fix" the issue of the fan going all the time. But this doesn't work for my current kernel (2.6.30-2-686 (Debian)).

So my fan is on all the time on my laptop and it's annoying.
