       thinkfan - A simple fan control program


       thinkfan [-hnqzD [-b BIAS] [-c CONFIG] [-s SECONDS] [-p [DELAY]]]


       Thinkfan   supports   most   hardware   trough   the  generic  sysfs  hwmon  interface  in
       /sys/class/hwmon.  By  default,  it  tries  to  use  the  Thinkpad-specific  thinkpad_acpi
       interface in /proc/acpi/ibm.

       WARNING:  This  program  does  only  very basic sanity checking on the configuration. That
              means that you can set your temperature limits as insane as you like.

       It uses only the highest temperature found in the system. That may be dangerous, e.g.  for
       hard  disks.  That's  why you should provide a correction value (i.e. add 10-15 \[u00B0]C)
       for the sensor that has the temperature of your hard disk (or battery...). See the example
       config files for details about that.


       Two example configurations are provided with the source package. For detailed explanations
       please read the README file. If you installed thinkfan from a  distribution  package,  you
       may find them under /usr/share/doc or wherever your package manager puts documentation.


       -h     Show a short help message

       -s     Maximum seconds between temperature updates (default: 5)

       -b     Floating  point number (0 ~ 20) to control rising edge temperature biasing strength
              (see README). Default 5.0

       -c     Load different configuration file (default: /etc/thinkfan.conf)

       -n     Do not become a daemon and log to terminal as well as syslog

       -q     Be quiet (no status info on terminal)

       -z     Assume we don't have to worry about resuming from  standby  when  using  the  sysfs
              interface (see README!)

       -p     Use  the  pulsing-fan workaround (for older Thinkpads). Takes an optional floating-
              point argument (0-10s) as depulsing duration. Default 0.5s.

       -D     DANGEROUS mode: Disable all sanity checks. May damage your hardware!!
