bounty granted ... I'm holding off on accepting the answer for now in the hopes that a developer may stop by and provide a more authoritative answer

comment Please explain the parameters 'noexpose' and 'cycle' in xset
If you turn off the screensaver with "xset s off", then does it still matter whether you have "s blank" or "s noblank"? It seems like if the screensaver is off, then it shouldn't matter whether it blanks or fades to black.

comment How to replace avconv with (the real) ffmpeg and have it work right?
The sudo apt-get dist-upgrade line seems unnecessary to me for the purpose of this post. Most people who are trying to install ffmpeg probably wouldn't want to trigger a distribution upgrade as a side effect.

comment How do I rename a directory via the command line?
This will not work if the new name is already an existing directory. Instead, it will move the old directory inside the new one.

comment Within Ubuntu, let virtual Windows machine control the discrete graphics card
I'm not planning on gaming. Poor performance is totally fine; I mainly just want to be able to use the HDMI output port. Support for HDMI output using bumblebee is kind of kludgy (you need a new session) and there is no audio support at all. Which is not to put down bumblebee -- it's a great project and they've made it possible for me to use my discrete card at all.

Thanks @John, your suggestion does work. However I prefer to run Ubuntu on the physical machine for security reasons and personal preferences.
