@Alberto I'm afraid I have to add to the pile of users reporting issues here. Kernel 4.20.14 with 418.43 drivers. Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, on an X1 Extreme.

Using both GDM3 and lightdm, "prime-switch intel" doesn't seem to power off the nvidia GPU. power seems to go between 25-35W on battery. Using powertop to set the Nvidia GPU to `Good` doesn't seem to help (100% usage in Device stats).

Attached are gpu-manager.log and gpu-manager-switch.log (while in prime-select intel mode). I'm not using bbswitch. I've rebooted a few times while in intel mode to see if that would take. No die.

Also including output of apt-list --installed | grep nvidia:

I'm fairly new to Linux, but if there's any additional information I can provide, I'd be glad to assist.
