|Does acpiD only check at boot or should it drop back to minimum (600MHz) if I switch to battery?|
acpid monitors changes to acpi "sensors" (I'm not sure how often it checks for changes) - i.e. if you plug/unplug the power, acpid will register an acpi "event".
Once acpid detects an event, if there is an acpid script for that event (i.e. if power unplugged then slow cpu down) it will be executed, if there is no script for that event, then nothing will happen.
Do you have an acpid log in /var or /var/log that could give clues to the problem?
