Why does Libreoffice 4.2.2 use the high performance GPU on my laptop running OS X 10.9.2? [closed]

This issue significantly reduces the battery life and as far as I know it is unnecessary because when I was running 10.6.8, the same version of Libreoffice didn't switch to the high performance GPU. Is there a reason or a fix for this?

Is it happening with all files or one particular file?

It doesn't seem to matter which file is open. If I open a file from by double clicking in finder everything is fine, but if I open libreoffice and then click open, that triggers the graphics switch and it then doesn't switch back.

I should add "until I quit libreoffice" to the end.

See if playing with the options in Menu/Tools/LibreOffice/View - Graphics output, change something. Another thing to try is resetting the user profile, sometimes solves strange issues. https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#User_profile_location

Sadly neither of those suggestions work, thanks for the help though. The only option I could change in the graphics output was anti-aliasing and it didn't have an effect. Maybe it's an OS X problem.

Please what is your LibreOffice version?
