    I just downgraded my iBook G3 600 from Tiger to Panther to see if it would increase the machine's performance. I did a clean install of Panther, upgraded to 10.3.9, and now for some strange reason, when I boot the machine (even cold) the fan comes on and constantly runs, which it never did before. However If I wake the machine from sleep the fan doesn't come on -- it only happens from a full boot-up (every time).

    Any tips on how to fix this?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the tips. Interestingly enough, after about 5 restarts the problem ceased.

    Cheers.

    Awesomeness. It's pretty cool how many small quirks can be ironed out by restarting, albeit five times. :D
