Laptop Hardware Switching

I just received a new laptop with Linux on it and I have a couple of questions regarding the different hardware that may or may not be attatched when I boot it up:

1. When I have an external monitor attatched there are different screen resolutions and refresh rates available than when I only have the LCD screen attatched. Is there an easy way to switch between the two ?

2. I have a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer attatched but when I configure it I lose the capability to use the glidepoint device on the laptop. Is there a way to configure both this mouse and the glidepoint so that when I don't have the mouse attatched I can still use mouse functions ?
