Your Toshiba is much newer than any of the three we had here (have only
one left, my wife's)! We've never had any problems with fan or other
thermal control on any of them, except the very oldest. When it turned
12, it started overheating. The fan would run like crazy with little
effect. Once the machine shut down when it got too hot.
I probably could have fixed it by opening it up and cleaning it out
again, but the new laptop was arriving and I decided I no longer needed
two laptops. Sitting it on a spare laptop cooler kept it working long
enough. (We live in rather warm area of Hawaii without A/C.)
But through it all, Linux supported all the Toshiba laptop features
without any complaints for hoop-jumping.
