Hum, for what it's worth, I found that the opposite is true for my
Thinkpad T43p. After I updated to 7.0-BETA-something, I could turn off
the cpu fan completely and have the notebook not go above 70 deg celsius
when being idle. This did not work before 7.0.

My maximum temperature under load (with fans running of course) was and
still is around 75 deg celsius.
