I see this problem a lot with an older HP laptop. I have the
cpu-frequency applet set up in gnome and shift down the speed using the
applet control. My bios does not set the maximum speed either.
Not a wonderful cure but it works to prevent cpu from shutting down when
There used to be a place where you could set the CPU temperature that
would cause shutdown. I used to know how to do it back in the FC2 days.
Either I have forgotten or it has changed. (It used to run at full
throttle all the time when FC2 started out.)
But I can't check now as the fix to the partial transactions has totally
removed my ability to log in to the box.
