No, the state is not null. It's the same as it always was - to get Optimus running, you need to use Bumblebee, which is a hack created by the community. Why are people behaving as if there's suddenly a new situation now?

Then a laptop isn't for you. Laptops with the igpu deactivated are pretty much if not completely extinct. All of them are Optimus nowadays. And the point of Optimus is to run as much as possible on the igpu and only activate the Nvidia card for specific heavy-duty tasks (games, 3d modeling, and such).
