I want to thank the people on this list who helped me get my T60 running. I
like it so much that it is now my primary computer running through a USB KVM
and connected to a 24 inch monitor.

I recently installed the NeoWPS object reactor temperature widget, and I can
see the temperature of the CPU. It runs in the range of 70-80 C, which I feel
is too hot. The hard drive runs at 30-40 C, which I feel is OK.

I saw a posting by Andy Willis on OS2World

in which he posted code to keep his computer cooler. Is anyone using this? I'm
contemplating extending his work.

Does anyone else do something about running hot for these computers?


I actually got a fan replacement under warranty for my T61 when it went belly up.  I wonder if there may be some quality issues with the fans in the T6x models?
