I have a Dell Inspiron 3521 with hybrid ATI/Intel graphics. (AMD Radeon 7670M / Intel HD 4000) using Ubuntu 14.04 with open source drivers for graphics. (xserver-xorg-video-ati)
I read that Ubuntu 14.04 with the linux kernel version 3.13 supports auto switching between graphics and dynamic power management. Is it correct?
Anyway, if it is true, I dont think that it is working in my system , because fan runs constantly and battery backup is less than 2 hours.

What should I do?
Is there any hope that this gets fixed in future kernels?
