I'm trying to record something through the internal mic (and I'm too cheap to go out and buy a proper mic) and I was wondering if there is anyway through Terminal,or an external program, to force the fans to shut off for a certain period of time? I don't want to turn them off to find they can't turn back on and suddenly the computer is 1000º...I just want to keep them off to have a minimal amount of background noise. (And, yes, I'll be running it in a moderate climate so the computer doesn't overheat).

Thanks

I had this problem with my old PowerBook, what I would do is turn down the AC, and put the powerbok on my shelf right on the vent and let it cool way down, then I would quickly do my recording and I got very mimimal noise....but with my MBP, there is is no way I could do that, the fans are loud all the time no matter what.
