Power Options Control Panel - what options are shown? Speedstep has the
ability to go to full CPU power on demand and be in a minimum power
(voltage, frequency, etc) state when there is no demand. You might
check the frequency when doing a Spybot Search and Destroy scan. It
tends to maximimize CPU power on my P4 and several Pentium M laptops I
have about midway into the scan. The application SpeedswitchxXP
(Google) has can graph the CPU frequency history but not all P4 notebook
CPUs apparently report the frequency externally.
