Laptops commonly underclock themselves to save power when they are below 100% load. This could also happen when the AC is plugged in, to lower power consumption -> reduce heat. Try google for something like cpuid or motherboard monitor and run Prime95 or something on it to max the CPU. (I have the exact same behaviour in a toshiba and it is documented, it goes back up when under load).
