I want to keep a profile with core parking on and one off. Being able to turn it on and off on the fly seems a big solution.

There are better ways to do this.
You can unhide the feature in the power management settings and control it on the fly.
(Default is 1, 0 unhides the attribute)
You get access to this setting:
100% disables core parking completely. 0% allows all cores to be parked.

and for next core 'Find Next...'.
I'm confused... the setting you show has "processor performance core parking min cores" as 100%. You say 100% disables core parking.
But, if I do the guide as per JMcosta and set both values in RegEdit to 0... it automatically changes the power options menu to 0%
So, is 100% or 0% correct for unparking?
