ThinkPad thermal shutdown

One of my laptops kept shutting down during use; after a lot of testing it turned out to be temperature related.

I downloaded and installed a cool utility – Notebook Hardware Control – and tweaked the ACPI settings for my machine.

The CPU was running at over 95°C and the laptop was performing a safety power down.

The fan is much more agressive now – and the CPU is running at 75°C – a lot better.
