So.. the laptop got two GPUs. Intel and ATI.
I can switch by opening the tray app, and choosing the VGA.

However, it's got a "non-standard" size, it makes my tray look weird.

Is it possible to switch the GPUs WITHOUT using the tray app?
Like a command line switch (bat file?) or something like that...

From ColonelONeill's answer taken from here:

For 32-bit Windows:

"C:\Program Files\ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMUIAux.exe" /HighPerformanceGpu /ShowDialog
"C:\Program Files\ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMUIAux.exe" /EnergySavingGpu /ShowDialog

For 64-bit Windows:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMUIAux.exe" /HighPerformanceGpu /ShowDialog "C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMUIAux.exe" /EnergySavingGpu /ShowDialog

You still need Power Manager installed, as well as the switchable graphics driver package provided by Lenovo (not AMD/ATI or Intel).
