Hello. Since all the new Macbooks came with intel processors they all suffer from the same problem: a high pitched idle noise, also known as "CPU whine". That rhythmic screaming like noise comes directly from under the "W" key. On linux one could simply change the Hz-ticking of the scheduler from 1000 Hz to a different value (mostly 100 Hz or 10000 Hz). On Mac OS that doesn't seem to be possible. So now my question. How can I get rid of the idle noise? Are there any tools that allow me to disable the idle mode of the processor(s)? Running Photo Booth does help but that isn't a solution. Since I have to write important texts in a very quite environment this can be quite annoying! So has anyone help? Thanks a lot !!
