Re: IBM_ECW : Power management tool for T4x/R5x

Hi, IbmPad,

Just an idea about the cosmetics -- how about make the display window "auto-hide"? Just like the Windows Taskbar when you set it to.

Cheers~

Re: IBM_ECW : Power management tool for T4x/R5x

Thanks, IbmPad, I am glad my 2c has its worth!

I actually accidentally found out the double-click trick myself!

I downloaded and the latest version and so far it's working great. The on-top thing is no big deal with the hover-on tooltip.

Thanks!

Re: IBM_ECW : Power management tool for T4x/R5x

I was thinking, just as a workaround, maybe the programme can use an if condition when checking the temperature, that is, if the temperature reading is, let's say, 5 or 10 degrees higher or lower than the last reading, then it won't change the fan status? This is to assume no heatsink can drop the t...

Re: IBM_ECW : Power management tool for T4x/R5x

Hi, IbmPad, Thanks for your answer! I did run it as a service in the background, but I do like to have the window showing me temps and fan speeds etc, so I quite often start the second instance, and that on my computer requires admin password. No big deal though, I do love this great piece of work, ...

Re: "Clone" a T42(XP) to a T61 possible? (or alternatives?)

I pulled the hard disk from a T43p, and installed it on my T60, to my surprise, the system just worked without a glitch, later converted it to a T60/T61 frankenpad, the system worked as well.

The hard disk is a mSATA SSD with different converters on the two machines.

I don't know about XP.

Re: IBM_ECW : Power management tool for T4x/R5x

Hi, IbmPad, Thanks for the great work! A few things (I've just registered an account for them): 1. The displaying CPU temperature once in a while drops to 20, and then instantly back to its real temperature. 2. Ticking "Fahrenheit" on the configuration windows freezes the programme, I don't use it, ...
