Hi,

Where can I find a (free/shareware) temperature monitor that updates?
iPulse doesn't seem to work and I just tried TemperatureMonitor but it doesn't update either. Its got something to do with my PB being a revision D apparently

Cheers

Not sure what you mean about updates, but TemperatureMonitor gives continual temperature data in five locations within your computer. Works on my iBook anyway.

Yeah sorry what I mean is that it updates what the temperature is when the PB gets hotter. When I intalled Temperature Monitor the temperature readings did not change when I tried to make the thing run hotter (i.e. opened up heaps of progs and ripped a CD). TemperatureMonitor said that it only shows the temperature that the PB was running at when it was first run. Apparently it can't give continuous temperature readings for the Rev D PBs. So I would have to keep closing and opening temperatureMonitor to get accurate readings.

I suppose there is a Dashborn app for this but Im not running Tiger.

I have the same issue with TemperatureMonitor not updating the temperatures. However, it's listed on there site to not work with Rev D. powerbooks.

"Added support for the 12-inch, 15-inch, and 17-inch PowerBook G4 models released in February 2005. Note that current versions of Mac OS X are not capable of refreshing most temperature sensor readings of the February 2005 15-inch model, and the February 2005 17-inch model."
