I don't know if this will help with any other models. But on my 5150, if I either suspend or hibernate with the power profile set to powersave, when I resume, the processor is running at 1.6Ghz and if I switch at that point to balanced it shifts processor speed on demand. I just have to remember to always switch to powersave before each hibernation (I tend to always hibernate now rather than shut down). The only problem I have other than this at this point is that if I suspend, I don't get any sound until I hibernate or shut down. I guess the sound card only gets initialized from the power down states and not from the suspended state. I hope this helps others who like me cannot expect a BIOS update to make it work properly since the 5150 is considered outdated (even though I get the full Aero experience and such).
