According to the thread Thibault linked to, it has to do with the CPU 
scaling of your computer. In your System Preferences, under Energy 
Saver, check to see what "Processor Performance" says (on OSX 10.4 at 
least that is where I find it). If it reads "Automatic" or "Reduced" 
instead of "Highest", then you're not playing with a full deck of cards ;-)
