Support for switchable graphics on Linux is not stable enough for
general use. If you want to know the details search the Phoronix news
articles.

That said, your other option is to go to the BIOS and turn off your ATI
graphics entirely. After that Linux should use your Intel graphics
hardware. Once ATI adds support for the latest version of X server, you
can turn the ATI hardware back on the same way. In any case, you should
be turning off one of them for better battery life since switchable
graphics is non-functional.
