    I decided to uninstall Fan control. The developer's help page says, i have to reset SMC after delete those files.

    I tried 5 or 6 times: shut down computer, press left shift-control-option and power at the same time, held those keys for about 5 seconds, but nothing happened. Am I supposed to hear something if the reset was successful?

    Am I doing it correctly? Was the reset successful?

    Thx a lot!

    If nothing happened it was successful

    If you are charging your MBA and your indicator shows the orange light, it should switch to green if the process was done right.

    otherwise, there is no indication of an smc reset.
