Default How to detect if there's an external monitor?

Hi.

Let me explain my issue. I have an Asus G1 notebook that I use as a desktop replacement when I'm working so I have an external LCD and keyboard.
It is all fine but every time I turn it on I have to switch to the external LCD. I want to automate the process so, when the notebook boots I would like to detect if there is an external monitor attached and switch to it automatically. I'm running the latest nvidia driver on 32bit Ubuntu.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

I forgot to add that I tried to run
nvidia-settings -q ConnectedDisplays
But it aways reports the same result,
Attribute 'ConnectedDisplays' (cartman:0.0): 0x00030000.
'ConnectedDisplays' is a bitmask attribute.
'ConnectedDisplays' is a read-only attribute.
'ConnectedDisplays' can use the following target types: X Screen, GPU.
