The idea is that when the CPU is not being used (like when the PC is idle)
the CPU will run at a lower frequency, saving power. When you open an
application, or use the CPU in some other way, it will return to full speed
(and the applet will show 100%).

The system monitor applet is probably the most useful on a desktop PC.
