The whole point of powerd is to automatically adapt to the load.  If
your laptop "lags too much" powerd should detect that and increase the
CPU frequency.  However, poor interactive response can result when CPU
frequency fluctuates too quickly; perhaps your problem will go away with
Andrew's patch, which is intended to dampen such fluctuations?
