Default Re: Hybrid power support on Linux?

I am currently preparing to buy a new PC, and this is actually a decisive question for me: I only need a dedicated graphics card for the few times that I play games in Windows, so after playing them and still in Windows, I could turn off the card via the Windows Drivers. Now the question is, if I then boot into Linux, will the card still be offline (i.e. not consume any power), or does it always get activated at boot-up (and shut down by the Windows driver when set to deactivated)?
