Windows 7: Dual Monitor Settings

Dual Monitor Settings

Hey, I have a dual monitor setup with my 15" laptop, to a 24" monitor via VGA, and ps3 connected via HDMI.

I have laptop as secondary screen then 24" as main, I was wondering is there anyway that when I change the channel to HDMI to play the ps3, that the settings would automatically go back onto single monitor for my laptop? Instead of me having to manually change settings back and forth.

Thanks in advanced.
