Re: LS uses the discreet card on my MB.

And to add, "little Snitch Agent" is reported by Yosemite as an app using "significant energy'.

Re: LS uses the discreet card on my MB.

The latests version of LS on Yosemite is even worse. Previously, I was able to bypass the issue by deactivating the 'network monitor'. LS would work and not kick in the discreet card as long as the 'Network monitor' was turned off in preferences. Now, the latest version kicks in the discreet card re...

3.3.1 Slows down boot up

3.3.1 has slowed down boot up time with mavericks tremendously. Previously, my mac would boot up within 1 to 2 spins of the (whatever that circular thingy during boot up is called).

LS uses the discreet card on my MB.

Hi there. I'm running LS on a 2010 MacBook Pro, which uses 2 graphic cards; an intel integrated as well as the NVidia Geforce discreet. I've noticed LS network monitor would use the Nvidia card and as such my battery life suffers. I don't see why LS would need to use the discrete Nvidia card, its no...
