    I have a MSI GS65 -8RF, it has nvidia optimus but even after exiting apps(like blender ,photoshop) or games it still uses Nvidia GPU, denoted by the orange led near the power button, in the task manager no programs are using the dGPU, i used Nv Optimus State Viewer it shows the dGPU is at idle.

    Thank you for the replies, I have found the program that was causing this.
    It was Rainmeter, after closing it and restarting, it was fixed.
    I also set the Rainmeter to use iGPU, now running it does not cause any problems.
