    So I've only managed to get the fans going a couple of times... but after leaving my Surface alone long enough to reach the screen saver a few times I entered my room to the sound of a jet taking off. Oh, no, it was my Surface fans.

    Anyone else getting this!? I really don't see a screen saver being that power hungry to make this happen. It's just one of the standard ones that comes built in btw.

    I haven't seen it with the screen saver but the Xbox music now playing screen where it shows the pictures and the graphics etc. causes my fans to kick on.

    "Next came the power supply. Digital geeks
    like Wozniak paid little attention to
    something so analog and mundane, but Jobs
    decided it was a key component. In particular
    he wanted—as he would his entire career—
    to provide power in a way that avoided
    the need for a fan. Fans inside computers
    were not Zen-like; they distracted."
