      Summer comming up?

      I would try disableing ACPI to chek if it is faulty or it is an
      internal problem. In my Inspiron 8600 fans ran allright
      without either apm and acpi. BIOS seemed to manage them.

      By the way, Now I have ACPI enabled and have notticed differences
      between with- or without- i8k: with i8k the HD area gets warmer, so
      suspect i8k donnot manage all senesors and I stopped using it.
