Graphics Auto-switching (Diablo 3 & Other Games)

Hi guys!

I can't seem to find an answer anywhere and most results mention disabling auto-switching rather then discuss it's compatibilities.

Firstly, does it work with games such as Diablo 3? Since the Intel HD 4000 is capable of playing Diablo 3, I don't know for certain if auto-switching to GT 650M automatically kicks in once I start the game.

How can I check what graphics card is being used whilst playing a game?

there is some little program i downloaded that pops up a little window in the corner whenever the graphics cards swap. gfxStatus or something like that. I'm betting the next person that replies will know!
