Thanks - What’s strange, I just realized, is that plugging a usb midi keyboard in made it kick the Radeon GPU back on, and it stared drawing 18+ watts again. I deleted the midi track and it still kept using the Radeon. So I saved the project (no midi) and closed and opened it again, and it went back to using integrated graphics.

Weird that it would need the dGPU only for midi?? Oh well good thing I don’t use much midi.

Have you tried using the terminal command instead of gfx to disable the dGPU with Ableton?

I don’t use Ableton but I did notice that like you I could not get Logic to run on integrated graphics using the gfx app, but the terminal command works.
