    The control center icon in the tray should be blue when using the Intel GPU and green for Nvidia.

    There is an Nvidia activity icon you can turn on from the drivers.

    Yes, I have. That's when running in optimus. I meant the icon that shows the state of the mux.

    Right click the desktop and see if you get an Intel shortcut, it should disappear in dedicated mode.

    I do have the icons. I just don't like the colors. Now it's orange for discrete and green for optimus. But I have hardcoded in my mind that blue=Intel, red=Amd, green=Nvidia, so I get confused by the green icon meaning intel. I get that they were probably going after orange=power, green=lightness.

    Red in a small LED for me means 'there is a problem'. That would probably freak me out a little if I had a hypothetical Ryzen laptop and there was a little glowing red indicator light, even if I knew why.

    Unsure if this has been mentioned before, but I believe I've found a bug with BIOS version 1.05.05 for the Clevo P670HP6 (MetaBox P670HP). Whilst running on battery, if "Load Defaults" is selected, followed by "Save and Reset", the laptop won't power itself on again. However, this doesn't occur with the power adapter plugged in.

    BIOS resets never automatically power on when on battery, this intended behavior.

    Right, it's the same when pulling the CMOS battery to reset, or after flashing.

    It helps reduce accidental power in your bag which obviously can cause issues.
