I have a Toshiba Satellite with an i7 6500u and a nvidia 950m. The installation of macOS Sierra went well and my laptop works almost 100%.
The only problem is the battery life and the heat since my bios don't allow me to disable the nvidia card and as far as i've read macOS makes nvidia gpu active all the time. So i tried to fix it with dsdt/ssdt fix but it doesn't seem to work. The _OFF method is in SSDT-13 and the INI is in SSTD-0,13 and DSDT. I don't really know how to code dsdt but from all of the tutorials it seems i've done everything right but in my system information it still shows the nvidia graphic card as "Display". I'm attaching the DSDT maybe someone could help me.
Thanks in advance.
