Is there a way to determine which program is using open-gl and keeping my discrete video card enabled?  I've tried all the obvious ones.

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    get an application called gfxCardStatus, it lets you have one or the other card on at all times (no idea why you'd want to do this though it already switches automatically)
