Hmmm... that sounds weird...

is there any way to check the temperature and watch the r.p.m. on the fans w/o going to BIOS-level?

Is it overheating and the CPU shuts down (but, of course, the fan keeps going to cool it)?

(To begin with: do not top-post, please.)

I have no idea if it is possible to watch the temp. I guess there must be a way in Linux but I haven't found it yet (I really haven't looked).

But start by looking in the BIOS and see what the temp. has been set to before CPU starts to shutdown -- ie, if your CPU does have this ability to slow down and then shut down when too hot.

BTW, you don't need to be a laptop in order to go into hibernation - you can set your PC to do this, as well as shutdown the HDs after a certain period or even switch off your monitor! (imagine that! :-) )


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought that tragedy is just around the corner.
