I would really need to see the dmesg with ACPI enabled.  Also, when your 
machine is slow, have you checked to see if you have a high number of 
interrupts (via vmstat -i or systat -vmstat)?  Are there any extra messages 
in dmesg after boot once it is slow?   Can you get the output of 'sysctl 
hw.acpi' when it is slow?
