Default nvidia optimus on linux question

Hi

I'm considering buying a computer with nvidia optimus (a 550M/555M card).

Will I be able to disable the nvidia card in linux, and have the sandy bridge do my light 3d work for me? (Read reliable suspend 2 ram while having unity up, possibly something as advanced as minecraft ).

Will I save power on a setup like that? I play games no occasion, but I dont need anything too advanced for my linux setup, 99% of the time I just want unity working. It's the 1% where I boot windows I want the 3d power.
