I have an old laptop that powers off when the processor's temperature exceeds 84 °C. The more annoying part is Flash causes this most of the time. If I watch a web feed for more than 15-20 minutes, it results in a hard shutdown of the machine.
I have an idea of a could-be solution to this problem: I want a program that would decrease the processor's clock speed to about 1.2 GHz (or whatever) if the processor exceeds the temperature of 82 °C, thus leading it a lower temperature.
Is there a program out there that does this?
The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1501, with an AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50, integrated graphics (x1150) and 2.5 GB of DDR2 RAM.
