  In Jaunty 9.04, a few days ago, it was noticed that the default CPU
  frequency is now "Performance".  Before, it was set to "OnDemand".
  This can be changed back again on a per-session basis by clicking on
  the CPUFreq applet (in gnome) and changing the setting to whatever is
  desired, or changed permanently either by updating
  "/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor" or using
  "cpufreq-selector -g ondemand"

  However, when using a laptop, this is not desirable default behaviour
  as the effect on battery is obvious.  This setting should be
  "OnDemand" by default.
