It is quite disappointing to click on this plasmoid and find it empty! Some nice info could be put there, such as GPU usage, temperature, total usage time this session etc.

thanks the observation. These are good ideas, I am planning to add some of them in a new update.

Another small thing:
bumblebee indicator should hide itself when the nvidia card is OFF, and show when the nvidia card is ON.

this looks doable.

Thank you for the new version.
However, I find it is a terrible design decision that when you click on the applet, the GPU is turned on. On amy systems, bumblebee has a bug in which the GPU is not turned back off. This means that on my system, if I click on the applet, to turn off the GPU I have to go through the removal of nvidia modules, and restarting bumblebee. It's a nice option, but since there is this annoying bug, if should be optional IMHO.

Thanks again!

I had no idea about this driver bug. It's surely a pain to remove and reinstall.
I did not found yet a wait to get the info without turning the card on, ideas welcome.

I can add a setting, something like "Only show data if the card is already on", or "the widget is allowed to turn on the card to query the information page"
