    I'm trying to understand why you need to mess around with it.
    The installed control works very well on my ibook, comes on when it's hot and turns off when it's not. The temp goes down pretty quickly. (I'm using iStat nano widget to keep track)

    Agreed, I have never had heat issues with my 1.33Ghz G4 iBook at all. The Fan comes on when it should. Never a problem.
