No guys, you are wrong.

There is no such a thing as the cycle mode, the command
Code:
samsung-tools --cpu cycle
just set the next mode in a cyclic way (normal->silent, silent->speed, speed->normal). It's just a convenient function used by the Fn-F8 hotkey to select the next mode.

In all the three modes (silent, normal, speed) the cpu fan adjusts its speed automatically, the only thing that changes is the way the job is done.
In silent mode the cpu fan takes a longer time to increase its speed, in speed mode a shorter time. That's all.

For the standard behaviour, just set the fan to normal mode.

From terminal:
Code:
valeri@valeri ~ $ samsung-tools --help
Samsung Tools - Command Line Utility

Usage: samsung-tools <interface> <option> ...

CPU fan:
   Interface:   -c | --cpu
   Options:   normal | silent | speed | cycle | hotkey | status

No such a thing? Ok, then what is it? - Options: normal | silent | speed | cycle | hotkey | status

Aha, understood. Thanks a lot for this information. Then it works properly by itself, thank you very much for your work. I don't even know what I would do without your program. :)
