Previously Dale had mentioned his Macbook was getting hot, here’s a tool to manually control the fan to cool that puppy down…
- Let’s you set the minimum speed for each fan individually.
- Adjust fan speed until the Macbook(Pro) is finally comfortable on your legs again
- Auto apply mode to set the new fan-speeds after a restart
- Sourcecode included! Extend it and change it to your needs
smcFanControl – Link.
Updated version, smcFanControl 2.0 – Link.

Thanks for the link to 2.0; hadn’t spotted that one.
Not sure why those links always resolve to an IP address on the Mac (they stay “homepage.mac.com” on the WinXP machine here), but the original URL is/was http://homepage.mac.com/holtmann/eidac/software/page5/page5.html
…and the new one: http://homepage.mac.com/holtmann/eidac/software/smcfancontrol2/index.html
