Hi, I suggest you to use acpi_call_GUI_systemd: https://github.com/marcoDallas/acpi_call_GUI_systemd

Teorically the code that you have to use is this: "_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF"

But (in my laptop) acpi_call stopped working after upgrading to kernel 3.5+, Here's the bug report: https://github.com/mkottman/acpi_call/issues/38.

Let me now if acpi_call works for you with recents kernel.

Regards, Marco
