I have successfully installed Optimus Manager for my Matebook X Pro because I would like to use the Nvidia card for its performance.
2 problems that I am having is that I can't use the Nvidia setting for more than 30 minutes because my laptop starts to overheat and the fans start going crazy.
I have followed this guide and I read and applied step 10 but even with the bbswitch setting turned on - it overheats my laptop.
How do I configure the power savings mode with Nvidia? Is it possible to maintain my battery life as if it were running on the Intel GPU? I get about 7 hours with the Intel GPU and I believe I only get about 3-4 with the Nvidia but I haven't been able to test it fully due to the overheating issues...
Edit: I've noticed that the battery life lasts for 7-8 hours only with Bumblebee... I can't mimic that battery life with Optimus Manager whether it is using the Intel or the Nvidia Card... How do I go about extending my battery life? Please help

Please help me fix this issue I would really like to use my laptop at full potential. I am sick of the graphical delays and slow browser loading with the Intel gpu...
