Does the K1 Allow Us to Turn Pixel-Shift ON and Remain On when Camera Restarts?

Every time I turn the Pixel-Shift ON, it is turned OFF the next time I turn the camera back ON. Any way to avoid this. I would like it to remain on the next time I photography.

You can make a user preset, it will stay on.

In shooting menu #5 there is a Memory option. Go in there and check pixel shift (and any others that take your fancy!)

I have used Probez's way. I made a User Mode setting that has Pixel Shift with MC on, iso at 100, f8 for the aperture. That way when I want to use it, I just turn the mode dial to User 1 and it is there, but I don't forget and leave it on when I am just wanting to shoot normal images. But, as Luke says, you can make the camera remember certain settings in the menu that it normally will forget.

I have also set pixel shift to the fx2 button for easy on/off access. The only downside being that you still have to dive through the menu when switching between MC on/off. Pixel shift would have been a great option for the smart dial IMO.
