Thanks for your continuing interest.  I've gone through that, including 
the "unavailable" settings, and there's no "Processor power management" in 
the tree.  I'll try and remember to check the BIOS next time I need to 
reboot, but I didn't set up this BIOS from scratch myself.  It's a fairly 
recent motherboard: ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe with an AMD 64 X2 4400+ processor.
