    At the risk of getting flamed again (I did the last time I offered some help!) need to mention that this has nothing at all to do with settings in Vista.



    Vista has a lot more going on in the background than did XP, so the lack of open windows doesn't really mean your machine is sitting idle.



    Depending on the laptop vendor, the fan settings are handled in the BIOS, or if the vendor provides hardware montoring/setting software (as does ASUS), in the vendor software.



    You need to look through your BIOS settings. There is also typically, on new machines, a Health Status page (or something named like that) which will show temperatures and fan speeds. Would look at that to see the current CPU temp and the fan speed.
