Default Re: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT's fan spins up in text console mode?

Since I was upgrading my Kernel package (not a new version), I decided to exit in console and idle for a few minutes and heard the fan spin up. After rebooting and idling in console (don't boot to X) for over half of a day, I heard no fan spin up. After I loaded up X with startx command and then exit X back to console, then I heard the fan spin up. Weird!
