Switchable graphics cards and Crimson drivers

Hello everyone,

 

I have Clevo P150SM with Intel HD + 8970m. After installing Crimson drivers it's looks like my notebook always used AMD card. AMD card never go sleep. I have diode in my notebook who inform me I use AMD card or not, the problem is my diode shines all of the time. So it's suggest me I use AMD card (graphics card fan doesn't work, but when I start it manually 'FN + 1' after few minutes I feel heat). So it's possible to fry my 8970m using just the desktop :O

 

On CCC drivers and only Crimson 16.1.1 I hadn't problems like that.

Crimson 16.2.1; 16.3.1; 16.3.2; 16.4.1; 16.4.2 and 16.5.1 have this issue.

 

So I have question for users with switchable graphics (best Clevo users): do you have also the same problem?

 

I wrote to AMD, but they consider me like a noob. "Instal manufacturer drivers". Yes, they have drivers 2 years old.

 

If Crimson 16.1.1 works wel, why they screw up this and can't fix this in next updates?
