    Where do I switch graphic processors in Snow Leopard on my late '08 uniMBP?

    It used to be in the "Energy Saver" area but, I had to log out and then back in again to activate the change. Is there something I'm missing here?

    8600m gt & 9400m

    I click on the battery icon in the top status bar -> then energy saver preference select better battery or faster processor. Then it prompts you to log out.

    This is how it has always worked for me.

    Yes, that's how it always USED to work for me as I described above. Now in Snow Leopard, there isn't an option or ANY visibility to make the change now. In the Profiler, it only shows the 9400m.

    Mine seems fine, but it's running the 9400 and the 9600. Maybe it's one of the flukes that Apple is in the process of correcting. (?)
