I remember those "soft-coolers" for windows 98. Someone once said me
they weren't necessary for linux, since kernel does that.

What they used to do was set the instruction halt (or something alike)
when the processor was idle. Having setiathome running forever will make
those softcoolers only a waste of memory.

I don't know what could be changed so fedora don't have this.
