on top of the processor of ANY compuer I used to stop.

In laptops its very common to at least dramatically slow down system fans when they're not needed. When modern laptops are in an idle or near idle state their processors use very little power and therefore generate very little heat.

Now I wouldn't ever try to slowdown the fan on an Intel P4 ... you can probably roast marshmallows over P4s.
