    2009 Macbook Pro 15 Inch Question about the eye candy
    Ever since day 1 when i bought it, the eye candy slightly lags whenever i scroll across my dock with the magnification on or when i minimize a window, view expose, etc.

    but when i put in my magsafe charger, everything runs smooth as silk and nothing lags...what the heck? i searched up google and youtube to figure a setting i can change perhaps, and the only thing i came across was going into system settings, energy saver, and deselecting better battery life and selecting higher performance, but the thing is that those options are not there at all! i dont see them.

    so what do i do to fix this issue? =) please help, thanks!

    Specs:
    rMBP 13 2.5GHz 121GB SSD
    Run a hardware check (insert OSX install dvd and hold the D key as you startup). Sounds like the discrete graphics chip might be having trouble, but the integrated is still working.
