    Fan Control 1.2...

    I used SMC Fan Control for ages, which forced me never to shut down when on my windows side, and just plain didn't work well since it doesn't allow for any customization at all. I recently found Fan Control, which allows you to control not only your fan speed, but when it should speed up, slow down and peak. Not only that, but it also allows you to dual boot and shut down, without losing all of your settings. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23137

    MacBook Pro Unibody - input remapper doesn't work

    Instead of using this program just install Fan Control on the mac side if you have one: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23137

    Just the fan control?

    It's not a permanent solution (I.E. It doesn't work in windows, but if you're running a concurrent OS X install, you can use this solution): http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23137

    Input remapper, Questions on Unibody 17" Macbookpro

    I've actually had more success with Fan Control than I ever had with SMC. Not only does it keep its settings after a shut down, it also allows for much more customization than SMC. With SMC all you can do is set the fan speed and the settings only apply to Windows via a reboot (shutdown resets them) which is bad for a few reasons, one being the life of your fans. With Fan Control, you set the temperate at which your fan speeds start to rise and temp at which they peak. This way when your computer gets hot, your fans cool it down properly instead of just running balls to the wall constantly. I run 64 bit Vista SP1 and both programs work properly, I just prefer Fan Control due to the extended settings. One thing to keep in mind... You have to reset your SMC in order for Fan Control to take control.
