Disable CPU Core Parking on Windows 7

Core Parking is a "green" sleep state that dynamically disables CPU cores in an effort to conserve power when idle. Disabled cores are re-enabled as the CPU load increases once again.

Let me show you how to manually do it. Also if you really care about the environment, you can always turn the heat down and put on a sweater.

I'll be working for Space Bear Development as Sound Designer on their latest online game "Galaxy Heist".
