In Feisty, I could change the trip points as described here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=3610514

Now, I can't. I get an error:
root@compaq:~# echo -n "65:60:50:55:50:45" > /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/trip_points
bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument
65:60:50:55:50:45

Any ideas? Thanks!!
