Yeah, I had this problem too. My laptop is pretty lame in the sense that it's built around a desktop P4 processor. I never used to get the speedstepping, but now that it's summer and/or the cooling devices are breaking down, I can't run mprime for more than a few minutes without the cpu speed more than halving. I've been working on this one exponent since May with limited hours whenever the laptop is in use. And the laptop quickly gets too hot to be placed on a lap.
