The X+1 number (in this case 2401) is the turbo-mode speed. If you use X, it disables
the Turbo mode which causes the CPU to run faster until it gets too hot. On my T400, I
found that if I limit powerd to X instead of X+1, I have fewer heat related issues when
I’m doing things like building a kernel…
