If your T40 supports speedstep, then it's probably doing what it is
supposed to be doing - keeping the processor speed low until the machine
actually needs it.

For example, my X22 shows this speed right now (cat /proc/cpuinfo):

model name      : Intel(R) Pentium(R) III Mobile CPU       800MHz
cpu MHz         : 531.712

... and since I'm just composing an e-mail that's fine.

Start doing something more CPU-intensive, and I get:

model name      : Intel(R) Pentium(R) III Mobile CPU       800MHz
cpu MHz         : 797.569

Yours may be doing something similar.
