Sorry to be a PITA with yet another question, but I haven't found an answer to this in the Forum so far.
It's a new install on my venerable old HP NX9005, and is working seriously well after its traditional stumbles around things like setting up the No-Name Wifi dongle (the first time Joble and I got passionate about something), but I digress.
The fan runs all the time. All the time. I checked the boot-up list and found that acpid, apmd, and apmiser start on boot but only acpid is actually running. Attempting to start the other two I am greeted with the colouring of the button as though my wish has been acknowledged but the fan goes on chugging and the app. remains stopped. Rebooting doesn't change anything in that respect. The fan exhaust feels cooler than room temperature.
Has anyone got an incantation, or pointers to one, that will make the fan obedient to power management please?
And thank you Neal and the other Grown-up's for making LXDE for us, once again.
