    Ok this might just be my imagination, but ever since I've had to remove 10.4.3 and install the old 10.1.4, the Powerbook G4 has not had the fan come on once.

    When I had Tiger installed, the PB would get hot at times and the fan would be running sometimes at high speed. What do you guys make of this?

    Tiger is much more processor intensive, simple as that. 10.1 is old and needs no where near the power that Tiger does.

    My PB on Tiger always has some amount of fan going, I wish it didn't, but such is life.

    How old is the Powerbook? Also, in Tiger, turning the CPU to reduced power mode makes it quieter (or, at least it does in my iMac g5).

    Yeah, I tired running my PB on reduced when I'm just sitting around, but it doesn't make much of a difference.
