I have purchased notebook HP ProBook 4520s with SLED 11 Linux. I
installed another distro. I was wondering is it possible in SLED 11 to
switch between integrated i3-380M intel GMA HD graphic card and
dedicated ATI Radeon HD 6370 for saving battery power?

Hi
Since it's a HP OEM install you would need to ask them direct, they
provide some specific drivers and enhancements for their hardware and
may be working on it?

You could send a PM to our resident HP helper Arnaudk93 and see if he
can get some information.
