No, the only way to switch graphics cards is to right click on desktop and select 'configure switchable graphics'. And then click on the game/application and change it to high performance.
There is no other way to switch

Furmark runs only on the Intel HD graphics, but apparently is able to see the other one. However it seems it can't use it.
I have ~4 fps when running it. Here is a screenshot:
It doesnt make a difference what grphics card i tell my laptop to use, the results are always the same

I have the same problem.
I have thinkpad E520 with Ati Radeon Hd6630m and unfotunately any advanced OpenGL application dosnt work soo goood :/ (loooooooooooooooooooooooooooow FPS)
I am looking for some solution and i was read a lots of forums but i cant find.
In this topic (polish forum) a lot of people have really similar problem with Dell Laptops... but there is some link to HP msg to users about update of software... and HP fix that at their laptops...
Dell is working to fix that.
HP fixed... (manual switch on Windows)
But i cant find any information what is Lenovo doing with that...
I hope it will be ok soon. (if HP did it Lenovo could too)
*and sorry for my english... its not my mother language and i know it isnt soo good...

IdeaPad G770 which uses a latest driver version 8.813.3.1000 (Edge has 8.811.1.5000) has an is option where we choose automatic or manual switching (or according to the battery/adapter usage) of graphics cards. Reviewer says it solved every problem. Even OpenGL with AMD card is possible.
Lets hope for ASAP driver update for ThinkPads, not only IdeaPad.
