that's normal.
if you adjust your power scheme to whatever related to battery performace or power saving.
the multiplier of your cpu is adjusted when you are not using cpu.
so that way, it can save power.

if you didnt do that, then there is problem but maybe this is it.
Goodbye AMD

Two possible issues I guess:

EDIT: Never mind this one; he's running an AMD. Ugh.. sleepy I guess 1) Intel's SpeedStep technology


2) Overheating. Your laptop might be overheating and the CPU simply starts throttling

Good luck

it saves battery. It's good to leave on. It's not hurting your performance at all.
