Your CPU is slow for the EMU. Please specify wich game exactly and what plugins are you using and what configuration. There are speedhacks too you know? Just post more info and we'll be able to help.

But mainly this is because of your CPU.

It's your laptop's or OS's power management settings. Disable every one of them (bios/control panel) you can.

Use gsdx directx.10 mode in your os vista and set native res in internal gsdx plugin or 800x800 max.

this will all ways happen on a laptop they just cant work with software emulation unless u spend £3000 on a good one and thats just pointless when u can build a better desktop for less

Yes, battery settings and stuff like that. I don't know what technologies your laptop supports/what technologies are enabled. Thus, you need to do some research yourself. But from the sympthoms I can tell your problem is caused by power management settings/processor throttling.

Don't post false information.

Look at my laptop rig, (in sig) its got worse specs and runs FFX at full speeds(granted with speedhacks) and doesn't have any spikes like the ones cslee2001 is having (granted some spells does drop the fps).

Basically check your battery setting make sure its on High Performance and if you can disable speedstep in the bios (not all laptops can do this and it does waste more battery).

Also for your gsdx make sure your using SSSE3 version of gsdx.
