Just bought myself one of these. Everything is working fine (wireless too) but it won't throttle the CPU. When I load the applet onto the task bar it says "...your machine may be misconfigured or not have hardware support for CPU frequency scaling". Now it's brand new so it must be a configuration issue. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
It's a dual-core celeron 1.66GHz on a "series 4" intel chipset
Edit: Well the solution is loading p4-clockmod as acpi-cpufreq doesn't seem to work with it, or speedstep-centrino. modprobing p4-clockmod in then restarting the gnome-applet seems to have done the trick
