It is rare when I use my MBP on battery power. But is there a way to only enable automatic graphics switching when on battery power?

You can try an application called "gfxCardStatus" :)

    Not anymore; gfxCardStatus has removed that feature. – magma Oct 22 '14 at 23:39

"is there a way to only enable automatic graphics switching when on battery power?"

Yes.

Go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver There are two tabs at the top of the window; one for battery and one for AC power.

Set the graphics switching option by checking or un-checking "Automatic Graphics Switching" in those tabs.

    Sure, but the "Automatic Graphics Switching" checkbox is outside, meaning that it's a global setting. – magma Oct 22 '14 at 23:40

    This answer is inaccurate. No reason to keep it. – Wildcard Sep 30 '16 at 20:11
