    NVidia optimus & newer versions of HWInfo.

    @captain.abstract, thanks for doing more than the superficial testing that I did! I'm glad you followed through. I also wanted to second the THANKS on adding the average column/statistic. That's been very useful for me as I've begun to take a look at the distribution of load across cores...

    NVidia optimus & newer versions of HWInfo.

    Excellent -- works as intended. The GPU was accessed once on start-up, but otherwise that's it. When I checked the entry for the GPU in the sensor window, there was only one line listing the card, but with no values. When I right-clicked the card, it showed as enabled, with the option to...

    NVidia optimus & newer versions of HWInfo.

    Ah thanks for clarifying. When I re-enable monitoring on the GPU in the sensor window I see the "old" behavior: polling + temperature increase. So I'd say using sensor-only mode (while, remember, the "Wake GPUs..." option is enabled) replicates the original issue. -Matt [hr] Ray...

    NVidia optimus & newer versions of HWInfo.

    Thanks Martin -- I ran it "as is" (without configuring any options) in sensor-only mode and everything looks fine. The NVIDIA 640m shows up in the sensor list, but all the attributes have the RED x and the readings are listed as "-". Absolutely no indication that the GPU is being polled, other...

    Ray, SIV is a BEAST! Wow, I'm really impressed with your work. Running v4.36, and yep, I can confirm it's polling the GPU -- I see the NVIDIA system tray icon blinking on/off every second -- and I've now moved from 50C to 60C. ...gonna try the beta next... OK, ran the beta and the NVIDIA...

    I'm happy to be a guinea pig too -- just let me know what I can do to help. -Matt

    NVidia optimus & newer versions of HWInfo.

    Thanks Martin, it works perfectly. You've preserved my sanity -- I was about to wipe and reinstall Windows (I was sure the GPU was involved, somehow), and how ironic, one of the first utilities I would have reinstalled would be HWiNFO64. After a week of trouble-shooting I was at my wit's end...

    NVidia optimus & newer versions of HWInfo.

    Forgive my ignorance but is the "disable" option in v4.16, or the v4.17 beta (which I haven't tried)? EDIT: ah, I see, it must be the newer beta. Hmm, I've installed and don't see the option yet. Perhaps I'm not looking in the right place. EDIT2: I've disabled monitoring of the GPU in...

    NVidia optimus & newer versions of HWInfo.

    Two comments. First, @Martin this is an absolutely indispensable product and I love it. Second, @Sfairat I noticed on Sunday when I updated to v4.16 that my core temps increased by 10C. This is a Samsung NP700Z5C, by the way. In any case, I've also noticed the GPU polling (NVIDIA GT640m)...
