Frequency scaling not working

Hi, I have a santa rosa based laptop ( Fujitsu T4220 convertible ) with
at 2GHz processor. In Fedora 8 (and the latest Ubuntu, Mandriva, and
Suse distros) the processor is permanently stuck at 800MHz. Trying to
manually change the frequency and governor using cpufreq-selector and
echoing values in /sys does nothing.
An interesting thing that I noticed is that the frequency scaling does
work for a few minutes after the laptop wakes from sleep, and then goes
back to not working.
I've run out of things to try and I can't figure out if it is a bug or
something I am doing wrong.
Has anyone encountered this or have any ideas?
