It helps reduce heat and power consumption.
Aka., extends the life of the processor.

Heh some people seem to think so but it's kind of ridiculous, the cores will unpark in a picosecond when needed. Same with turning off the speed step or other variable clocking mechanisms that also save power and heat. The CPU will hit full speed /instantly/ when needed.
