Every time my screen shuts off from inactivity my cpu fan starts spinning like there's no tomorrow. When I move the mouse and the screen comes back on the fan immediately slows back down to normal speed, but I can't ever see signs of any unusual activity going on in the task manager.
I even left the task manager up so that if there were any activity going on I would be able to see it the moment I move the mouse... but I saw nothing. So now I'm left wondering whether it might be possible that there's some process that regulates the fan speed that gets bypassed when the computer sleeps?
I would appreciate any clues that would lead me to shutting this noisy fan up.
