It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

What do you mean by active but not currently used? Can you explain further or provide a screenshot? – RolandiXor Apr 30 '11 at 21:01

It is a bug. If you can run nvidia-settings and that shows that you are using the nvidia driver, then you can safely ignore the "not currently in use" warning.
