my fan, under the left speaker, stays on all the time, have the most recent
PB 17", Panther, the fan is on low spead, a constant whisper, not normal, no
feedback from apple yet, despite the LONG threads on Apple support pages...
I think it is a power mangagement problem, and may be corrected in future
releases of Panther, if not, well, it's hardware....
