Parallel computing toolbox setup question

Subject: Parallel computing toolbox setup question

I have a quad core computer; and I use the parallel computing toolbox. I modify the default 'local' setting; and set different number for the "worker" number in the parallel computing setting, for example 2,4,8.. And also set the minimum and maximum worker to work for the task. After the setting, I did the validation to make sure everything is ok.

However, no matter what I set, the AVERAGE cpu usage by MATLAB is exactly 25% of total CPU usage; and None of the cores run at 100% (All are around 10%-30%). I am using MATLAB to run optimization problem, so I really want my quad core computer using all its power to do the computing. Please help
