I'm attempting to install Bumblebee and use the PM features of Bumblebee. The installation of Bumblebee works fine and I can use optirun to run programs with my GPU, however, bbswitch doesn't want to run even though it's been installed. I'm running the nvidia-325 drivers from the xorg-edgers PPA and I'm running kernel 3.10. It sounds to me like it all should work without a problem, however, when I attempt to run

sudo modprobe bbswitch

It tells me that no such device exists or that it can't be inserted. It's really frustrating me because I'd like the PM features to increase my battery life again.

I'm running with an Intel Haswell processer (4600 HD graphics) and a GTX 765M graphics card.
