    Is this normal? I mean, the processor is supposed to speed down while doing basic stuff isn't it?
    I checked this with Core2DuoTemp.app and it always show im running at 2.33ghz

    BTW my battery runs for 2:30 to 3:00 hours

    This is normal. You can choose to decrease processor performance by changing pref's in system pref/energy saver for battery mode.

    I think i found the problem and it was CoreDuoTemp.app itself as it install a kernel extension by speedit

    to solve the problem i did this:

    Code:
    cd /System/Library/Extensions
    sudo kextunload speedit.kext
    sudo rm -R speedit.kext
    
    And thats it, my battery life raised from 2:30-3:00 to 4:00-4:15 hours

    still cheking
