If so, then the question is what is the machine doing that its CPU is running all the time?
hmmm.... "something" is obviously running that causes this... but what exactly... and I tried .. just for the heck of it... to reboot the Tibook.. and see if that would shutdown the fan... but no!... the fan was/is on all the time..... during reboot even!

If not, then what process turned on the fan and forgot to turn it off?
exactly! but how to tell ?

Actually, I was asking those questions hoping to narrow down what was happening.

To find out which process is using the most CPU time, run `top`. (To quit, press 'q'.) Once you get its process id (pid), run `ps -AH` to see if its dependent on anything.

On the other hand, if it's running because it was forgotten, I would look at the power management processes.
