Perhaps the 1800-MHz only applies to CPU internal cache, etc. while
the external bus-clocking is down at 500-MHz or so.  Sounds like a
typical marketing ploy!

About disabling the ACPI...  Can I do it *safely* via the remote-ssh
connection?  Or do I need to be at the box w/ keyboard and monitor?
What I've read makes it seem that the ACPI is set at boot-time.

If you don't mind rebooting the remote machine, add:


to /boot/device.hints and reboot

Although I've re-booted remotely, I've never done it after a boot modification. 
 It's probably prudent to wait 'til the weekend to try this -- mistakes are 
easier to deal with!

Thanks for the info.

All that rebooting remotely in this case will result in is ACPI being disabled 
:).. you should be able to disable ACPI from the BIOS as well, if you like.
