I don't know about your question, but to add some data to this: I
noticed after an update of my laptop (around christmas I think) that
the frequency isn't tuned down anymore when idle. When I manually tune
it down with the applet it raises withhin some seconds and then stays
at the fastest frequency (until I lower it manually again). I also
noticed that in the beginning (after reboot) it works as expected, but
after some minutes (less than 10 in front of the desktop I think) this
I didn't look into this issue yet. Do I have to disable powerd and
gnome is doing it instead or is this some kind of bug related to
Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't,
and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it.
