Herman Moothery , If you find yourself having to prod the fan to get it to spin, replace the CPU fan as it is sticking and probably faulty/worn out, new fan is inexpensive insurance to keep the CPU cool. Link below is just an example of a new fan that can be purchased, you can also do a search for perhaps better pricing. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

It depends, some CPU's do not get hot in standby so the fan does not start turning until a specific degree of tempreature is reached. Then it is normal. But if the Fan is older then I would just buy a new CPU fan and then you can also choose to get a more quit version. There are a lot of CPU coolers out there.
