comment Automatically revert to laptop screen when external monitor unplugged
Boom! Updating to 14.04 seems to have fixed the problem. If I hot-unplug, I have to CTRL + ALT + F1 and then F7 to get back, but it works!

comment Automatically revert to laptop screen when external monitor unplugged
@KonnerRasmussen that was my initial thought. But when I press the display toggle button on my laptop's keyboard, a window pops up showing only the laptop screen. I see this when I plug the monitor back in, as it takes a few seconds for the list to update to include the external monitor.

Looks like I know what I'll be doing tomorrow morning: updating to 14.04 and hoping against hope that hot-plugging monitors fixes this.

While I have never seen removing a monitor cause any damage, it doesn't apply in this case all the time. It happens even when the computer and monitor are both asleep and the monitor is disconnected.
