There is a kernel module you have to bring in before it will work... for me it 
was p4-clockmod.  Like you I went to the archives and found mainly posts from 
people saying to look in the archives.... how much better it is for future 
generations to answer the question and then say they should have looked in 
the archive.  What I did in the end was go looking in /lib/modules for likely 
looking modules and modprobed them one by one until something good happened.

However  - on my Inspiron 5150, I found it all pretty useless.  Although it 
would idle to CPU down to 300MHz, and indeeed everything was correspondingly 
sluggish, this had no effect whatsoever on the (loud and intrusive) fan 
activity.  So I assume much of the heat is coming from the video card / SDRAM 
and is constant no matter what the CPU rate.  I turned it back on to 
"Performance" and forgot about it.
