Default Re: Hybrid power support on Linux?

It's definitely easier for the nvidia linux developers since they've got all the information
needed. It's a bit more difficult on the open-source side of things,
but we can switch off the graphics card via acpi and then rely on the
integrated card when on battery. In the same way, we can use acpi
calls to switch it back on and use the nvidia binary drivers for best
3D performance.

According to the linux-acpi devs, we should be able to easily have the
switching code into nouveau in the near future.
