R9 m290X (HD8970m) doesn't turn off in power save mode (intel HD4600)

On my Alienware 17 since i upgraded to Windows 10, the discrete graphic (HD8970m) is always on, also in battery mode.

 

The system recognizes only the integrated graphic as active (Intel HD 4600) when using normally the machine, but the heatsink of the discrete GPU is hot like it is used.

 

With games or programs that need more GPU usage, the Amd works fine.

 

Is there any solution to this problem? 

 

Thanks
