    Why my Macbook uses only 1.2Ghz of CPU usage?

    Just recognized this issue in my Macbook. I installed the Coolbook application in my Macbook and found that only 1.2Ghz of processor is being used and rest all is not consumed at all. Why is that? Is it problem with the CPU in my Macbook? Is there anyway to fix this?

    No there is no problem with CPU as it just works fine. Then why only 1.2Ghz of processing speed is used? It’s because you are using your Macbook with direct AC power without the battery.

    The reason for this is because reducing the processor speed will consume less power input needed and your Macbook will prevent from shutting down when it needs or consumes more power if the entire processing speed is used.

    It is strongly recommended that you should not use your Macbook without the battery which in sense direct AC power. As a little shake or the adaptor removed will shut down your computer in the same minute and all your information which are not saved will be lost. So better put in your battery if you have one or buy a new one if the previous one is worn out and then try to run the test again with the Coolbook application which should show better results.

    :: Don't worry its large uses of processor.

    :: So if you using your Mac with direct supply then cutoff the direct supply.you need to use with battery.

    :: If your system having the battery problem then replace it.

    :: Try to avoid heavy load software.
