Description of G4FanControl 0.6.1

Edit by Brothersoft: G4FanControl is an useful Application that can be used to specify a certain minimum temperature limit that much be reached before the fans on a iBook/PowerBook G4 laptop start Up.
Default temperature limits will be restored by Mac OS X in the event of a reboot.

From the Time I acquired my trusted Powerbook G4 15" it has never given me a problem. However, as anyone who has Put their hands on this wonderful laptop can attest, the operating temperatures quickly climb and it soon becomes practically impossible to touch, especially on the bottom under the display. What makes this situation truly absurd is that the PB actually has two powerful FANs, but, for some reason, they have been rendered practically unusable by operating system. In fact, Apple, probably for reasons to do with battery life, has thought it "opportune" to set the minimal activation temperature of the Fan to around to 60┬░ and also "conveniently" denied users the possibility of managing them manually.

I spent some time researching the net for a program to manually manage the fans but nothing was available so I wrote this one. The entire G4 Powerbook and IBook cooling system is managed from the ADT7467 of the Analog Devices. The ADT7467 has 1 integrated temperature sensor (Local Sensor) and 2 more remote sensors, can control the fan and, what's more interesting, is that it manages all of it without any participation of the processor.
