Thermal Power Control
There are three power control methods for controlling the Notebook 
PC’s thermal state. These power control cannot be configured by 
the user and should be known in case the Notebook PC should 
enter these states. The following temperatures represent the chassis 
temperature (not CPU).
•  The fan turns ON for active cooling when the temperature reaches
the safe upper limit.
•  The CPU decreases speed for passive cooling when the temperature
exceeds the safe upper limit.
•  The system shut down for critical cooling when temperature ex-
ceeds the maximum safe upper limit.
