I _think_ in BenHs kernel Lombards work mostly okay with sleep + fan, but
I'm not sure.  I talked to him a bit about this and unfortunatly, he can't
get any information on just how the fan is supposed to go on newer machines.
Some the fan never kicks in and gets hot (new ibook, tibook, pismo(?)) and
on others it kicks in but only during sleep and thus kills the battery.
