Kernel-Processor-Power

Question 
Hello!
Thanks for reading!

First I should mention that my computer is running fine. However, in the Event Viewer I see many warnings for :
Event 37, Kernel-Processor-Power

The messages I get is:


The speed of processor (0-7) in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for (usually 3-5) seconds since the last report.
Each time there's 8 of the same event, same time, one per processor.

I was wondering what could be causing this. I think this might be happening while my pc is in the idle state when it's on and I'm not using it.

Is this a "problem"? The temperature always seems to be cool. And and looking through the event log, I see that this has been happening almost since I bought the computer(brand new).
Alienware m14x.
Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU
Installed Ram: 6 GB
System type: 64-bit
ALL drivers/bios up to date.

Again, I don't see anything wrong with how the PC performs. But the warnings I see in the Event Viewer are alarming.
Is this common? What could be causing this?



AFTER THE BREAK

Method 1 :Make sure the power setting are set to maximum , even when the battery is in use.

Method 2: Make sure the BIOS(Basic Input Output System) power settings are set to maximum.
Warning: Be careful when changing BIOS settings. The BIOS interface is designed for advanced users, and it's possible to change a setting that could prevent your computer from starting correctly. Updating BIOS should only be done if necessary (to solve a compatibility problem, for example). It can be a complicated process, and if an error occurs, your computer could be rendered inoperable. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions exactly.

Note:  You need to contact your Computer manufacturer, in order to update the BIOS Power settings. 

Hope this information helps.
