I've been reading in the arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AS … th_Optimus
But it says there: Using some tools you can start with the Intel and Nvidia VGA controller visible. In this mode the Intel controller is used and it is possible to power-down the Nvidia part.
"Some tools" isn't explained any further. The thing is: Without those "tools" the whole explanation that follows it completely worthless because it won't work unless I'm able to see both graphic cards.
Can anybody tell me what to do in order to also make the intel graphics visible? Thanks
I realize you're new here, so first of all welcome. Next, I'd suggest you read further on in the wiki you posted the link to. All the explanation for the tools you need is right there. You can use, according to the wiki, acpi-call-git from the AUR and follow the explanation or use Bumblebee and follow that explanation. It doesn't get much clearer here.

Thanks a lot, as it turns out I was misunderstanding the text.
Anyways, I think I got it right this time. The problem is, no matter which call I use
echo '\OSGS 3' > /proc/acpi/call
echo '\OSGS 1' > /proc/acpi/call
I end up with the computer not shutting down or not rebooting (depending on which option I chose).
The following are pictures I made, showing what exactly happened before my laptop refused to shut down or reboot. The things you see there are the last steps that were made, nothing else happened after that, my laptop just sat there and did nothing until I rebooted it manually.
Would be great if you know what to do about it thanks
