Laptop CPU Temp increase when idle - FC5



I have a dell 600m inspiron laptop that I recently upgraded to FC5. This
was a complete reinstall.  When the laptop is idle, the CPU temp, as
reported by i8kctl increase. If it sits idle for 30 minutes the CPU temp
can reach up to 60C. At that temp, I start seeing problems.  With any
keyboard activity the fan speed picks up dropping the temp back to
39-40C.  

I've disabled the screen saver and changed power management setting with
no change.  

I've added /usr/bin/i8kfan -d to my startup programs thinking that it
would keep running even if the system is idle.  

Has anyone experience similar problems or have suggestions to control
temps?

Thanks,
Clifford
