I recently got a HP pavillion laptop for college. HOwever, i've been messing around, and I think the nvidia card is active all the time, thus decreasing my battery life. Is there any way that I can force my pc to use intel graphics when not plugged in, and Nvidia graphics while plugged in? I nave been advertised a longer batty life than 4 hours.
Use the balanced power profile and it will use the IGPU.
I am on high performance right now. Id love for it to switch to battery saver when using battery and high performance when plugged in... but i think that's a different situation. Will the balanced plan do that? Will it use different settings to make my pc run better when plugged in, and also change the graphics settings?
