I have Lenovo ThinkPad W500. I have Ubuntu 12.10 installed. Its fan was not running at full speed, so I installed ThinkPad Fan Control software (tpfc0.5). I launch it by executing tpfc_start.sh in terminal and entering my password. Here's a screenshot of the program: https://www.mediafire.com/?76yc1qnmkcn30vh
When I try to set the fan speed by either Automatic Control or Manual Control, the fan goes to full speed for about 5 seconds, and then it goes back to slow speed. Is there something that I'm missing? Please help me so that the fan remains at full speed all the time until I set it down to a low speed. Thanks.
