[SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

Hi all,
Recently I configured bumblebee on my Lenovo T420s. Everything works fine except sometime I found my laptop temperature raised by some reason. I finally managed to figure out that it was chromium who turned on the nvidia card.
here's steps how I can reproduce the issue:

cat /proc/acpi/bbswitch

it was: 0000:01:00.0 OFF
after running chromium, the same command returns: 0000:01:00.0 ON
and when I close chromium, it doesn't turn off the card, which makes a big battery consumption.

I followed arch wiki to configure bumblebee: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bumblebee
I'm using nvidia driver instead of nouveau.
Is there anyway I can stop chromium from turning on nvidia card? normally I prefer longer battery life to performance.

[update]
I found this issue in chromium bug tracking system:
http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issue … l?id=43138
It's on macbook pro though. I guess chromium does the same thing to my Arch?

[update2]
2 solutions to solve this issue:
1. stop flash HW by editing /etc/adobe/mms.cfg

#Hardware video decoding
EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0

2. add a new udev rule
vim /etc/udev/rules.d/99-remove-nvidia-dev.rules

# Prevent the nvidia card from "randomly" turning on
DEVPATH=="/module/nvidia", ACTION=="remove", RUN+="/bin/rm -f /dev/nvidiactl /dev/nvidia0 /dev/nvidia1"

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

i know that chromium needs HW acceleration on to run properly, so i exclude the idea to disable it (if it's possible) through advanced settings.

my idea is to create a simple script which substitute the chromium launcher, this is my idea, or better a workaround:

launch chromium;
when chromium stops -> echo OFF > /...bla.../...bla.../something

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

thanks for the reply.
Actually I also noticed that it's not chromium who turned on the card. Only when I access some websites cause the nvidia card being turned on. I guess it might be the flash. Not sure, any idea how to confirm that?
And I had the same idea as you mentioned, unfortunately, I can't turn it off this way. This is weird.
Let's say I can turn it ON and OFF with

echo ON/OFF > /proc/acpi/bbswitch

however, if it's switched on by chromium, this way doesn't work.
the only way I found is to run another program with optirun like

optirun glxgears

then when I close the program, the N card is switched off

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

so, why not "hack" the chromium .desktop, adding

optirun

before chromium?

in this way launching chromium will launch optirun and when you close chromium optirun will automatically turn off the NV card

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

hmm, this is one way too. I'll have to do this if there's no other way.
I actually care more about the battery life. with N card off, I get much longer battery life and lower system temperature. otherwise I can feel the laptop burning my legs sad
And chromium doesn't have to use N card at all. I can turn it off with the optirun way even if it is still running. I guess it's something turned it on, but not using it.

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

you can also try to disable HW acceleration of flashplayer in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg if you use "standard" flash player, NOT pepper version

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

I can find only two lines in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
#Hardware video decoding
#EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
does it mean it's not turned on?

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

commented lines mean not used, in this way, i think, configuration is done by flashplayer itself at runtime, and because NV cards are in the "whitelist", i think, that flashplayer will use HW acceleration. try it:

#Hardware video decoding
EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0

this should force HW acceleration OFF

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

I modified /etc/adobe/mms.cfg, now it looks like

#Hardware video decoding
EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0

but when I start chrome the N card is still on.

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

post the output of:

pacman -Qi | grep flash -A 10 -B 10

then restart the system and try it again.

do you have vdpau installed?

Re: [SOLVED]nvidia card turned on automatically

what I don't understand is, I don't find any auto-switch feature on bumblebee. (although people are talking about it, I don't think it's implemented)
then how does chrome turn on the N card?
to do this, chrome will have to detect that I have a N card but is disabled, I have bumblebee installed, and I'm using bbswitch to switch it on and off, otherwise it makes no sense even if it turns on the N card, because it doesn't know how to use it to render graphics.
