Celeron M: passive cooling never enough?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Is it true that with a 1400 MHz Intel Celeron M CPU, one had better
get used to the fan, as there is not much one can do to reduce power
consumption to where one can avoid the fan coming on less than every
90 seconds, on e.g., Thinkpad r50e?

I have an x40 with a 1.2ghz PM.  The fan comes on occasionally when
the machine isn't busy, but certainly not every 90 seconds.  When
the cpu is loaded the fan runs steadily after a few minutes.
