    I have the new 2011 MacBook Pros with snow leopard and the newest gfxcardstatus installed.

    On battery I have it set to integrated, yet it still goes to discrete mode with a "d" in the bar on top... even though it has integrated only checked off.

    Any help?

    It's an issue with Lion.
    Switch to Dynamic and then back to Integrated and it should switch to the Intel Graphics.

    I'm using Snow Leopard but your method still worked, switching it to Dynamic than back to Integrated.
