Not unless you run another command first to tell the applet it has root 
privileges. I followed a link to instructions for that from someone in 
this thread, and now have been able to use the applet to set my cpu to 
2000mhz, which is near it's top speed of 2100 mhz, and things are 
responding much more quickly now.
