Some laptops do let the processor get quite hot before switching on the fans - this is to extend the time the battery lasts.
I haven't seen a bios setting other than to enable the fan as continuous when on mains power, this doesn't mean that some don't have additional settings.
Why do you think it is coming on too late?
