    So Steve talked about getting the extra hour of battery by changing the settings to use the 9400 rather than the 9600 since they're both built in. I want my extra hour, where is that setting? I can't find it anywhere!

    Selecting the 9400 or 9600 and toggling between the two?

    I haven't seen a response on this yet, has anyone figured it out? I read on the front page that it requires a reboot when switching between cards, but I see nowhere in the utilities where I can switch between the 9400 and 9600. Obviously for web surfin and everyday stuff it makes sense to use the 9400 for battery life. I see how now in System Pref there is a trackpad icon to control that new feature, but don't see anything about graphics adaptor.

    Anyone?

    This should be in the regular Energy options in the system preferences.
