Control cooling pad with software
I use a dual core laptop as a desktop. It sits on a decent cooling pad which keeps the computer fans from running most of the time. The cooling pad does its job but at a noisy price. The pad is powered by a usb port on the laptop.
I would like to find some software that will kill the power to that port unless the built in laptop fans start.. then that sequence would power up the usb port and start the cooling pad fans as well.
I have considered this might just start a endless cycle.. the laptop warms up.. the internal fans start, the cooling pad fan starts and then the cpu cools and everything stops spinning.
your thoughts are appreciated.
