    Those times seem a bit odd. Can you correlate them to events? Do they match up with reboot times? Possibly this is run by anacron ?

    Hmm, maybe sensors is calling hddtemp. Not sure how that interface works.

    Have you explored the logs under /var/log ? For example, when I run hddtemp as a regular user, in /var/log/secure I find the following entry:

    Sep 14 14:00:05 HOSTNAME userhelper[18122]: running '/usr/sbin/hddtemp' with root privileges on behalf of 'regularuser'

    Maybe you will find something more telling in one of those logs. grep or search for httemp in the logs updated close to the time of your last email warning.

    Can you post the results of this:

    cat /etc/sysconfig/hddtemp

    I'm not sure if it would apply, but is /dev/sda encrypted?

    What happens if you just run hddtemp as a regular user? Is it different if you run it as root?

    IIRC, hddtemp runs as a daemon. You might find it with something like this

    systemctl list-unit-files | grep hddtemp

    [–] I like KDE. Should I install kde on Fedora or use the spinoff? flaflashr 4 points ago in Fedora

    I've always (nearly) used the KDE spin. I think updates might be a bit more consistent that way.

    I think electricity in NYC is a lot more than $0.11 per kWh. I was paying $0.21 in the burbs earlier this year. Granted, they get the corporate/industrial rate, but I'd be it's still at least $0.16.

    Does the memory work? I had a Pro-64 that the on-board battery died, so it would no longer retain stored memory channels. I tried to replace it, but it was buried in the middle of 4 or 5 circuit boards that were sandwiched together and soldered. I gave up

    In the event of no rational replies, try uninstalling AA and reinstalling it (on your phone). That seems to fix a number of problems.
