    What are the default settings (fan policy) for omnibook xt1500.
    Just after install omnibook kernel module my fan_policy was:

    Fan off temperature:        50 C
    Fan on temperature:         55 C
    Fan level 2 temperature:    63 C
    Fan level 3 temperature:    75 C
    Fan level 4 temperature:    83 C
    Fan level 5 temperature:    83 C
    Fan level 6 temperature:    83 C
    Fan level 7 temperature:    90 C
    Minimal temperature to set: 25 C
    Maximal temperature to set: 95 C

    and after echo 0 > fan_policy it is:

    Fan off temperature:        60 C
    Fan on temperature:         75 C
    Fan level 2 temperature:    85 C
    Fan level 3 temperature:    90 C
    Fan level 4 temperature:    95 C
    Fan level 5 temperature:    95 C
    Fan level 6 temperature:    95 C
    Fan level 7 temperature:    95 C
    Minimal temperature to set: 25 C
    Maximal temperature to set: 95 C

    And what temparatures causes fan to work without omnibook kernel module?

      These default values of omnibook module are not the hardware defaults. You may get  hardware defaults after resetting your machine (removing both AC power and battery).
      Probably the first list you posted is the hardware default of you machine.

        I also think that the first list describes the default settings for my computer. My machine is xt1500 model wth mobile PIV 1.8GHz. Can adjusting this settings to omnibook module defaults damage my machine? I mean, can higher temperature couse some problems with my computer?

          I do not think it, but if you are unsure modify the default values in the omnibook.h
