    You should be able to define which graphics card to use in the HP power configuration utility (I'm not sure about the name but it's most likely something similar). In theory if you're plugged in you should be using the ATI card by default when plugged into AC power and the Intel one when running on battery, but you should be able to verify and change that with the HP power utility.
