I have had this in the past where either the CPU or PSU fan had died.  I'll 
check both of these next time I'm on site, but I believe the PSU is fairly

I installed Glance and had a look, but the sensors didn't show, even when I 
pressed 'S' as per the help page.

Also, as this is a headless server, can anyone suggest a non-GUI monitor app?
