Fans running constant ...

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – My fans on my Lenovo 500Y notebook, was running almost constant. According to "powertop" my "Audio codec hwC0D0: Realtek" was using 100% all the time. Turning off the microphones solved the problem ! "Audio codec hwC0D0: Realtek" is no longer even listed in "powertop" and fans is running normal. This is clearly not acceptable as i am using voice communication. (ex. Skype) Is there another way to fix this ?? Edit : Correction, "Audio codec hwC0D0: Realtek" is still listed as using 100%, but dont stay like that all the time, when mic is turn (HowTos)
