Bei mir ganz anders:

D:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\ole>sysctl hw.cpufrequency
Der Befehl "sysctl" ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder
konnte nicht gefunden werden.

This was Thomas' Gigahertz Titanium PowerBook:

[Bahamas:~] tpkoeste% sysctl hw.cpufrequency
hw.cpufrequency: 667000000
[Bahamas:~] tpkoeste%

VersionTracker says:

These scripts run a Terminal shell script (sysctl hw.cpufrequency) to determine the maximum speed your processor is currently capable of running. If the number displayed is significantly lower than what it should be according to your chip speed, your Power Manager has most likely gone wonky and you need to reset it. Shut down your computer. Hold down SHIFT+CTRL+OPTION+POWER for 5 seconds, then start up again. Run this script again to see the improvements! WARNING: This will reset your preferences (clock, etc) to their defaults and erase any RAM disks you may have.

After this procedure it now says:

[Bahamas:~] tpkoeste% sysctl hw.cpufrequency
hw.cpufrequency: 999999997
[Bahamas:~] tpkoeste%

Volker Weber, 2003-12-04

This would be the Apple document explaining how to reset the PMU.

Hi Stefan, are you running your Mac on the decimal time system?

I think your kingdom was a little more long-lived - more than 7 hrs :-)
