My fan has been turning on a lot lately and I have not changed my work 
habits or installed anything new, really. Wondering if there's a way to 
more closely monitor what is happening other than top and gkrellm. My 
thr0 and 1 temps have hovered at an average of 44 degrees C and 
typically I see 1 to 3 % cpu usage unless starting something or moving 
or resizing GIMP images

It's a Compaq Presario 4020US Centrino notebook, with 749MB of RAM (at 
the moment more than 400 M free), IPW2200 wireless with 1.0.0 driver, 
lampp and java.

THanks in advance
