For power savings, do gaming laptops have the ability to switch to an onboard Intel graphics adpater to save power? I'm specifically referring to something like a Sager/Clevo gaming laptop.

Not all laptops can switch to the igpu. Optimus and enduro need some extra circuitry. Most of them do though as it's not an increase in price but they may not include it since it can have issues. Check the specs. It will not state the igpu on the spec sheet if it can't.
