System becomes unusable with hybrid graphics after exit of games that use discrete graphics card

How to reproduce (occassionally):


1. Have a Lenovo P70 w/ latest Lenovo drivers installed + all Windows updates in place.

1.a. have Hybrid Graphics set in BIOS.

2. Play some Counter-Strike (or most any game that goes full-screen that relies on the graphics card).

3. exit the game.

4. be forced to hard-shut down the system because all you get is a black screen (keyboard buttons work but no response from OS).


How to not have the problem:

Same steps above except for

1.a. set graphics mode to use Discrete graphics exclusively.
