Comment:

 Hey tonywob thank you for your submission on this.  Currently there is not
 a driver that supports switching between the Nvidia and Intel GPU's.
 There is a good option for most optimus enabled computers.  Go into your
 bios and see if there is a discrete only mode for your Nvidia card.
 Basically you must disable the intel GPU and default only to the Nvidia
 GPU at this time.  I am not aware when or if there is going to be a driver
 that will support GPU switching so I will close this and set it as
 deferred.  Thanks again!
