What other items do you have in /proc/acpi/fan/? It appears that we are
looking at more then one fan here.

Yes, there are 4 fans (C260 - C263). I only mentioned the last one as
the others are always in an off state.

Also the "status" reading may not be a switch that can be changed but
only a place holder for what is actually happening. You may have to set
a value elsewhere to turn the fan on and off. And the value may only
show "on" when the fan is actually running.

Yes, I assume that it is only and indicator. Problem is that I have
no idea what to do to control the fan or to just change it's state.
I tried the powersave settings, but that have no effect.
