Override Active Value

    I realized that it seems to be impossible to override the value ..._ACTIVE_0_0 in the schema file. Even if I write directly in the trip-points via echo -n "110:90:60:0:60" my fan starts cooling in that moment the cpu reaches a temperature of 50C. I know from windows, that it is possible to increase that value up to 60C. How can I do this using acpi and powersave?
    Thank you very much for help, Mirco

      Overriding should work (maybe it doesn't like the 0 value?).
      Have the values really changed?
      cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/*/trip_points

      Are your fans really controlled by ACPI?
      echo 3 >/proc/acpi/fan/*/state (off)
      echo 0 >/proc/acpi/fan/*/state (on)

      What kernel version do you use?

      Thank you for your answer.
      Kernel version is!
      The values have really changed but controlling the fan has no effect. echo 3 > state is accepted and cat state shows me the correct state but the fan still runs.

      Notbook is ASUS A3G. Any hints?
