    Thanks to those who had ideas regarding my iBook 900 with the constant fan.

    Anyone who hasn't read the other thread should know I have a 5 month-old iBook 900 / 40 / 384 mb / Combo / Aiport, mostly used for surfing, iTunes and iPhoto. Since I've owned it, the fan is always on, from start-up to sleep or shutdown, no matter what I'm doing with it, plugged in or not.

    One of the possible fixes I've been considering before taking it to my local Apple Store was resetting the PRAM (did that) and possibly resetting the PMU. Can the PMU be reset on these newer (really the newest until a couple of days ago) iBooks? Any other possible software/OS fixes anyone can think of before having to actually take it anywhere?

    Many thanks,

    i've got an almost identical machine to yours, and I dunno if it's been said before but it's got to be a problem with YOUR machine in particular, otherwise we'd all be suffering from it - i'd wager it's a h/w problem rather than s/w!
