    Hey all!

    I have a Mid-2015 15" Retina MBP. Intel iris pro graphics along with the AMD Gfx card. I have graphics card switching enabled to help save battery life. It seems that whenever it switches from Iris to AMD my Mac freezes for a good 60 seconds or even more. But the weird thing is, The cards switch when im only doing simple tasks such as browsing the web. If i switch quickly between a few tabs, it freaks out and just freezes.

    I'm not quite sure what the issue it. If I disable switching the issue disappears. But i don't necessarily want to do that.

    Thoughts? I am completely up to date on all OS updates.

    Sounds like a problem with the Flash Player plugin (web browser), which uses GPU hardware acceleration and is not necessary for many websites.
