Now I also thought it was the other way round, in fact optimus was designed like that, it switches to nvidia graphics only when you're gaming or gpu heavy apps, but switches back to integrated when system is idle to save on battery life.

Or something in those lines, you should check FixT's review on optimus, he explains it perfectly.
