[T500] Is it possible to switch GPUs withoout the PowerMgr tray app?

[ Edited ]

The tray app is not really a standard size.

This is what I'm talking about:

Is it possible to switch GPUs without the app?  

(I have checked the contents of the C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities folder, but couldn't find anything useful.

Any ideas?)

For 32-bit Windows:

"C:\Program Files\ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMUIAux.exe" /HighPerformanceGpu /ShowDialog
"C:\Program Files\ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMUIAux.exe" /EnergySavingGpu /ShowDialog

For 64-bit Windows:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMUIAux.exe" /HighPerformanceGpu /ShowDialog
"C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMUIAux.exe" /EnergySavingGpu /ShowDialog

You still need Power Manager installed, as well as the switchable graphics driver package provided by Lenovo (not AMD/ATI or Intel).

 

By the way, Firefox Nightly is way faster than Pale Moon. :smileywink:

Thank you very much!

Ps.: I gave up using Pale Moon/Firefox since it only copies Chrome and does the stupid version race (while they are not able to retain the same speed with such a 'dev team'.) Chrome does the job just fine.
