Thread: CPU Fan goes crazy while screensaver is active

    Default CPU Fan goes crazy while screensaver is active

    Hi,

    Running OpenSuSe 11.1 i586 GNOME on an HP Pavilion dv5035nr notebook.

    I've been experiencing something odd. By default, OpenSuSe has a 'blank screen' screensaver to go off whenever the computer is idle. Also by default whenever the screensaver is activated the screen is locked.

    I like having these features on as they are, but whenever the screen saver is activated my CPU fan remains fully active. I fear this might be heating up my CPU more than it should. A few seconds after unlocking the screen are enough to automatically shut down the fan.

    Has anyone encountered this issue and solved it somehow? I would greatly appreciate the help

    well my 1st guess would be that maybe Beagle is using this time to start its work, its been known to be a cpu/hdd hog and probably the number 1 item people uninstall after an installation.

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot for the tip. I uninstalled everything related to beagle except libeaglec1 (because of dependency problems with a lot of other apps) and firefox is faster, my cpu is quieter and everything is a bit faster.
