Monitor hotplugging is very much allowed, as long as you have DynamicTwinview active (by default it is active). If you use the GUI nvidia-settings, then also you should be able to dynamically (de-)activate any attached monitor.

Oh yes, in my usage, till date I haven't missed anything from xrandr-1.2 while using nvidia-drivers.
Many thanks for the hint, I'll try that. Basically, since I have DynamicTwinView active, I should be able to switch without using xrandr, If I read correctly.
I'll give also a try to disper: many thanks for the help.
