    Hello folks.

    Just got the new office 2011 which i use every day for university, primarily the powerpoint program for presentations and note-taking. Today i noticed that my battery drained more quickly than usually and found out that i use the nvidia 330M when powerpoint is open. Just did some research and neither word or excel makes the MBP use the 330M. Only powerpoint. Is there any way to force the intel gfx on all the time? Or at least when running on battery?'

    I prefer to use the note field under the slide. That way i always know what the notes are for :)

    thanks for the link.
