Revision of Howto Silence Sony Vaio laptop fan Using Fansilencer from Tue, 09/04/2007 - 09:30

<!--adsense-->Many people complain that Sony Vaio laptops are loud because of the fan. Fan is running almost all the time, which can be very annoying. This program works under Linux and requires SonyPI driver to work. This driver is preinstalled at least in Ubuntu distribution.

This program allows you to determine the maximum temperature. When temperature reaches this definied maximum the fan starts to run. It runs until the temperature is drop down to the level that user wants.

Program simply prevents fan from running until the predefined temperature limit has been exceeded. After this fan runs until the ‘low limit’ has been reached. It is a very simple program indeed and shouldn’t require any extra explonations. Below is a concole output of the Fansilencer.
