Enables the determination of temperature limits for triggering specific actions, like passive or active cooling, suspension (hot), or a shutdown (critical). The possible actions are defined in the DSDT (device-dependent). The trip points determined in the ACPI specification are critical, hot, passive, active1, and active2. Even if not all of them are implemented, they must always be entered in this file in this order. For example, the entry echo 90:0:70:0:0 > trip_points sets the temperature for critical to 90 and the temperature for passive to 70 (all temperatures measured in degrees Celsius).
