Hi,

 

Firstly, English is my second language so I may make some errors, sorry for that.

 

I was using AMD VGA driver version no 15.201.1001.1002 on my Lenovo Ideapad 500-15ISK-80NT laptop. But I can not manage switchable graphics i mean, i.e I can not start Minecraft on Radeon R7 M360 so I decided to try a newer driver version. I downloaded and installed Adrenalin 2020 20.4.2 version and it solved my problem.(I can run Minecraft on my R7 M360 so far). But I realized that my GPU is always on after downloading the Adrenalin version. Before, I always use MSI Afterburner to track GPU clock to ensure my GPU whether is on or not. Normally, while I was surfing the net or I opened Minecraft, those clocks never did not change, always 0. But now, in the idle (when nothing is opened) clocks are 300 MHz. When I open the browser, those clocks are changing. Also, when I choose the eSports mode in the Radeon software every app are affected by that(for example discord, Yandex browser, etc.) Every program is opened on my r7 m360 GPU. How can I fix that? That weird thing did not happen 15.201.1001.1002 but it does not allow me to switchable graphic settings properly.
