How To Disable Disable Cpu Frequency Scaling In Ubuntu Jaunty And Karmic

Dynamic frequency scaling (also known as CPU throttling) is a technique in computer architecture where a processor is run at a less-than-maximum frequency in order to conserve power.

It is also used in quiet computing settings and to decrease energy and cooling costs for lightly loaded machines.
