I, too have an X60. After the success with the T60, I grabbed an X60, because
that would really be a perfect laptop for me. But even though XP runs just
fine, eCS shuts the machine down after a few minutes. I didn't know why it
shuts down, but I bet it is a problem with heating.

I fixed it a different way, after seaching open tickets on I
switched to the W4 kernel. I lose one CPU, but the machine runs normally. (But
still have bad system sounds, like some T60 users on this list.)

I wonder if the T60 would run cooler with the W4 kernel. It's too bad to run
only one CPU, but I would be satisfied with good eCS stability with only one
CPU. I may go back to the X60 and try SMP with cpuspeed, because cpuspeed is
still working well on my T60.

Neil Waldhauer,

Why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
