Dear all, 

the recent versions of R-gui trigger the usage of the dedicated GPU, which unnecessarily drains the battery. The fix is very simple: set the 	NSSupportsAutomaticGraphicsSwitching to true in the Info.plist. Also: https://developer.apple.com/library/content/qa/qa1734/_index.html <https://developer.apple.com/library/content/qa/qa1734/_index.html>

Would be nice if this got fixed in a future release! 

Best, Taras
