I installed CpuIdle on my new FSC Amilo v3205 laptop with Intel Core Duo and Windows Vista Business. Normally, the laptop makes a high-pitched sound that may become annoying when there is perfect silence around. But with CpuIdle I can barely hear it. Hmm… feature? bug? Anyway, it’s a good thing.
Now, I don’t know if the program actually cools the processor, I will do a test as soon as I install a temperature monitor.
I want to mention a problem, though: I have the Aero interface and have set the taskbar to autohide, but when CpuIdle runns, it keeps reappearing for a fraction of a second as the systray is updated, so I disabled the systray display of processor usage to get rid of this problem.
I forgot to mention that this high-pitched sound is not hearable when the processor in on full load (this without CpuIdle).
Maybe this information is helpful and somebody can explain me what the deal is with this thing. I read on forums about other laptop models that make this noise too.
