It would be good if someone could confirm this, but I read that when laptops with *desktop* processors run from batteries, they are hard-wired to run at half the maximum clock speed. Only the mobile (M) processors are able to run at the full clock speed on batteries. This is due to the sheer amount of power the desktop processors dissipate at the maximum clock speed.
