So, I've got a HP envy 14(early model), with a ATI Radeon Mobile 5650/intel gpu set up. And for the life of me I can't seem to switch to the integrated(intel) chip.

I know I'm not supported by the fglrx drivers any more, but I can't get the stock xorg drivers to switch via VGA switcheroo. No matter what I do, the ATI chip remains powered and eating battery life.

I've tried the script over at http://asusm51ta-with-linux.blogspot.com/, but it doesn't seem functional any more.

Any suggestions?
