Noisy fan

  1. My Latitude CPx has a stock fan installed that is much quieter than most other ones I've seen. Not really. Anyway, after a certain time, the fan starts to cool the case. The problem is, it doesn't shut off. I'm sure that it is cool after about half an hour, even when I leave it sitting with no programs running. Is there any way to shut it off after a certain period of time?

    I did a Google search and within about 10 seconds I found the definition.

    U can get a fancontroller with manual controls for about $10, or a digital one w/ temp. monitoring for about $30
