The problem is solved mate ^_^ I just stopper this service and fan
started to behave like always.
One more little question (if you don't mind)).

1) How can I see my CPU usage and processes load? I mean something like Task Manager in XP,
when you know exactly which process loads your CPU.
I've tried SuperKaramba monitors, but only thing I can see out there
is the CPU load.

2) Is it normal to see 38% - 40% of CPU usage when I do nothing with my
laptop? If this is to high, so I need to turn off some other
(useless)processes too?

Thanks a lot for your help.

P.S. I'm starting to love Fedora more and more considering the
simplicity of solving the problems which it has. ^_^ And
people which always ready to guide you.
