    CPU parking options in power settings


    I added a registry tweak that unlocked the power option to park the CPU....

    I am running a PC so battery life or power use is not an issue...

    just want to be clear about the min and max settings....thought it would be just ON or OFF...
    its the %s that confuse me....So if i set the min to 100% I assume that turns oof parking completely ?
    If I set max to 100% this allows the CPU to go to the max it can ? So is the min setting for parking ? and the max to just restrict the max the CPU will run ?
    If these assumptions are correct....what are the %s in between for ?

    I have read everywhere about this and cant find a definitive answer.

    thanks

    I'm not sure if there is a definitive answer!
    Rather, choose 'Balanced', 'Power Saver' or 'High Performance' in Power Options; Windows will take care of the rest.

    After choosing one of the above, Task Manager will show you if any are 'Parked' or not:

    I couldn't be sure of the percentages of the different power states and their affect on your machine, you would have to set each and monitor them yourself.

    To show individual processors, right click on the graph and choose 'Change graph to'►'Logical processors'
