I think we are not communicating some idea here, because I hear you 
contradicting yourself, and I doubt that is your intent.

>the elements cycle according to the profile but they never turn off

This makes no sense.  The elements cycle BY turning off.  You can't 
have them cycle and not turn off.  It's mutually exclusive.

It's like saying you press the accelerator of your car all the way 
down, all the time, but slow down by taking your foot off the gas 
while your foot is still stays all the way down.  This isn't a 
quantum roaster (i.e. you can't have it control and not control at 
the same time - it's either or).

What am I misunderstanding in what you are saying?
