    Is your iBook malfunctioning? If not, why concern yourself with it? The fan will come on when it needs to.

    You are absolutely right but I want to know it so I can work and be calm with it.

    I search for this data every where and couldn?t find it what makes it more interesting so..

    105 degrees C is the maximum. Nominal is 65. It's all available in the processor white papers from Motorola.

    I am sure though the logic board will shut down the iBook before 105 C because that is 221 F if the unit converter is correct. I mean the iMac G5's will shut down at around 195 F.

    The temperatures are quite fine, think of what these things are made of. Keep in mind these are CPU temps, not full system temps. The biggest difficulty with varying processor temps is expansion coefficients though but the materials can handle it.
