Annoying "Switch Graphics Card" popup

Hi, I know this is normal, But every time i disconnect the power or anything like that i get a small popup:

Switch graphics card
For optimal battery life press FN+F7 to switch to integrated graphics (A system Reboot is required)

This is massively annoying me.. Is there a way to get rid of these popups?

Click the Start Orb menu, type 'Power Options' and press ENTER. On the selected Power Plan, click 'Change Plan Settings', then click 'Change Advanced Power Settings'. In this window you should see options for Intel Graphic Settings, and one for Nvidia Graphic Settings. Change the 'On Battery' setting to Maximize Performance .. this should disable that pop-up .. at the expense of battery loss.
