As well as dropping to 600Mhz, the voltage goes down to 1.2V so the power usage should go down when the Pi is idle.

is it normal that the cpu-frequency goes down to 0,6 MHz, even when the temperature is low ??
is that some kind of low-power mode ??

I think it's better to just wait to see what the Raspberry Pi Foundation surprise us with for our next £35 computer.
