Does this also mean that your fan is not running at high speed before those
nope, I think it mostly didn't even run at low speed.
absolutely nothing unusual, just sudden power loss.
when my cpu is clocked to 1.2GHz and mostly idling it's around 51°C and
the fan kicks in at 56° (running Panther the fan starts only when I'm
playing WC3 and after a reboot to gentoo the CPU was still at 57°C!).
@600MHz the temperature for idling is 48°C I think.
