Is there a plist or hidden config to set my graphics/energy preference to "Always use low power/ integrated graphics"?

Seems like energy saver preferences only allow choosing between:

  1. Smart auto graphics switching
  2. Always use high-powered graphics

enter image description here


gfxCardStatus is an unobtrusive menu bar app for OS X that allows MacBook Pro users to see which apps are affecting their battery life by using the more power-hungry graphics.


By this way you can simply disable your graphic card by an icon in your menu bar.
