    Default ProTip re:Temp monitoring

    I use Temperature Monitor

    I until recently, set my hard drives to never sleep because they would spin up every few minutes anyway.

    Turns out that Temp Monitor has its own setting for polling the HD's temp/SMART status that completely ignores the Energy Saver preferences. It also ignores whatever state the drive is in. It was set to a default of three minutes.

    It annoys me that the app would ignore the system settings, but it annoys me more that it took so long for me to figure it out

    FWIW - I just installed it last week. I was curious how in compared to the iStat nano app. Temperature Monitor seems to display more temps. Does it really test all 4 CPU cores separately it's got a temp for core 1, 2, 3 and 4 and many others. Like... Graphics CPU, Main logic board, Memory Bank A, Hard drive, the 128GB SSD on said fusion drive, Secondary Heatsink.

    Sweet if I really have the sensors.

    According to what I have read about it if your Mac has a sensor it can get info from it
