Hi, same here (iBook G3). That's the hard disk (it's placed on the left
of the touchpad).

cpudynd will also try to spindown the hd if there's no activity. You
would "gain" a couple of degrees, but not a lot of them, because the hd.
electronics generates a not so small amount of heat.

a) sysfs not mounted? With 2.6 kernel, cpudynd will try to use sysfs and
not procfs.

b) driver module not loaded?

I prefer replies sent to the list so that others can benefit from the
