- Laptop fan always on

My new Turion64 ML-30 Asus A6K notebook is really nice except for one
thing - the fan is always on, even when the system is completely idle.
CPU temp is usually ~43C. The fan comes on ~41C.
I don't understand why the fan should always be on. I thought AMD 64s
ran pretty cool?
I've heard you can slow down AMD 64s and make them cooler. How do I do
this? There's nothing in the BIOS and the Asus Power Gear thing doesn't
seem to work at all.
Re: Laptop fan always on
According to the spec:
AMD Turion 64 Mobile Technology
1MB L2 cache
It runs at 1600MHz.
The Asus Power gear thing won't let you select the low-power settings if
you're running off AC power. If you try to customise the available
profiles, the changes don't stick.
Is there anything else I can download that works?
