I just upgraded to 10.4.4 late last night. I didn't notice early but now I can hear that the fan on my normally totally quiet iMac G4 is running constantly.

I just restarted the machine and the fan is still blowing.

Any ideas on how to get the fan to quiet down? Again, this is a flat panel iMac G4.

Is there anything in Activity Monitor that's using up a lot of CPU cycles or are you doing anything intensive that might cause the fans to stay on? Is the enclosure warm? Maybe reset the PRAM (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=2238) if you want to, it may help assuming there's no reason for the fans to be on.
