    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

    Andres

    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.
