But come to think of it, I only want to disable cpuspeed

Well, it's not even required to disable cpuspeed. It's enough if cpuspeed can be told somehow "a user is on the GUI now, and the system is not running on batteries, don't throttle the CPU."

When the screensaver kicks in, or when the laptop switches to batteries, or when there's no active X session, cpuspeed should be told to resume normal throttling.

On that subject, does anyone knows how to tell the Frequency Monitor applet to keep the cpu in lower frequency all the time (i.e. 'killall -USR2 cpuspeed', which is what you want typically when running on batteries) ?
