Lenovo B570 i5 3000HD only external monitor question



I´m considering to buy a B570, 2410M, 3000HD graphics only ( no dedicated graphics card ).


I will use the B570 as a desktop replacement, connecting an external monitor via the VGA-in, and will not use the laptop-screen at all.


If I connect an external monitor via the VGA-in, configure this as the only monitor - and unplug the external monitor, and then plug the VGA again - will the B570 remember the settings ? Will the external monitor be ON or OFF ? Do I have to reconfigure the external monitor set-up again to make it work again ?


What should happen:


Unplug - Laptop screen turns on,

Plug again: Laptop screen truns off, external monitor turns on.

as i know, you won't need to re-configure external monitor settings.
