Hmm, is the fujitsu S series doing the increase using software?
Normally this is an acpi issue and therefore you probably need an
kernel module enabling you doing such things using /proc/acpi subsets.
You probably could check if there is something like that around
in /proc/acpi already though.

As for software that is used for such, i've never stumbled across such
on any notebook type.

Hope that helped
