    As a matter of fact I happen to understand perfectly , but you are not catching up , this thread started with an issue that the OP has fluctuating Hz even if he turns G-Sync off , when he turns it off and reboot as a result Optimus should activate , so like you see he has Optimus so your case is entirely different and needs its own thread .

    The switch setting should be available for all "Mobile" GPU chips not just some , if however your laptop comes with a "Desktop" GPU chip which is very rare you need to make sure you have sat up the "Desktop" driver not the "Mobile" one so that "Optimus" is deactivated permanently , so basically start a new thread and post your specs and installed driver so people can help you .

    Watch this to get an idea of what i am saying : YouTube
    I gave up about this matter ages ago, im on external monitor rn
    but my laptop is a mobile gpu and has no optimus so I really dont know what ur talking about, i would love to have optimus would save a lot of battery but sadly no.

    Well basically since your GPU is mobile then it has Optimus , but the problem is they disable it in Bios (Source : regarding PH517-51-72NU and g-sync and optimus — Acer Community) , with no option to turn G-Sync off then Optimus will never activate .
    Then your solution may lay in removing the laptop driver and install the desktop driver despite having a mobile GPU since the main difference in both is Optimus support , this could stop handing out refresh rate management to external GPU that isn't there and keep everything handled by Nvidia control panel .

    Fill this out: Display Driver Feedback Form

    An nvidia representative may be in touch if they need more information or have a fixed driver for you to try

    I have only one final suggestion which seems out of the box , there is a tool named Custom Resolution Utility or CRU , it allows for creating new resolutions and deleting old ones , you may try deleting the resolution / refresh rate that you get dropped to , maybe at its absence it becomes impossible to drop to it .

    Will give it a shot thanks for the suggestion
