I am absolutely thrilled about your new GPU acceleration on my Laptop. Finally your Software feels solid on high-end Apple Hardware. However: It annoys me that I always have to switch it off manually when I am on the run and need to save on battery life.

On my MacBook Pro I can assign on how the GPU will be used and when for system tasks – can't you provide a setting in the next version (preferably) that lets you assign on when LR CC should and can use the internal GPU?

It makes sense to always let it powered on by default on desktop machines, sure, but for my taste not so much on battery driven devices like laptops or other portables.

Example:
– Option 1: Desktop –> Always on
– Option 2: Mobile –> On while charging / powered through an outlet or power adapter
– Option 3: Mobile –> Off while not charging / not powered by an outlet
