    How to disable nvidia 325m card? (optimus) - it's sucking power even tho not used

    I've got an asus n60jv laptop with nvidia optimus 325m (dual cards, nvidia and intel).

    The nvidia card has never worked and I've tried various things. There's no option in the BIOS to disable one or the other graphics card.

    I've been able to live with just the intel graphics card, but one thing that is bad is that the nvidia card is still turned on and sucks power. It means battery life is horrible, too.

    Is there any kernel module or whatever to disable the nvidia card or anything that works at all with nvidia optimus cards available now.
