No, thanks, Ed... but no dice. It's prolly buried deep. But, no, I'm not referring to a proggie I installed, though I have tried inthe past to mess with lmsensors or whatever that is. It didn't like my machine.

>From what I am guessing, it IS getting hot, but HOT for a Pentium M is a higher threshold than most procs. I guessing that the shutdown feature is defaulted to something like 80 or 85 degrees C and my proc is spec'd for 100 degrees C. Either way, yes it IS HOT, but NO Mr. LinuxOS, I don't want you to shut down for me. I got it. I'll keep an eye on the temp myself. Thanks!


thx for your help, Ed.
