Espionages uses the discrete video card all the time
« on: September 08, 2012, 03:52:38 AM »
Hello,

I'm using Espionage all the time with my MacbookPro with Retina and I use gfxCardStatus so I can save some battery juice while working. And it seems like that Espionage keeps the discrete video card active all the time, which drains the battery a lot.

Honestly, I can't see why Espionage's UI needs some much power that the discrete video card needs to be using always (even when no Espionage windows are visible). Is there a reason? Can this be fixed?

Hello Thanks for the input, I cannot test this today, but I will on Monday and if correct I will report to dev team and see if they can comment on this.

I will let you know.

Hello, it works fine over here, see the attached screenshot

which operation do you do in Espionage which makes the card switch? Or it switches right when you just launch Espionage, and the padlock appears in the menu bar item, even without opening any window?
