With WoW running, my notebook occasionally goes up to very high FPS, but always drops down to 30.0. Is this a power saving feature that I can turn off?

Using a dell inspiron 9200 with radeon 9700. plenty of ram, processor power all of that.

It could either be the speedstep or overheat.
To test it, you can set it to "always on" at the power management. If it still happens then its probably the heat.

That is either powerstep or heat. Probably powerstep, I get that too when playing high graphic games. I set my laptop to run speedstep when on battery and disable it when on ac.
