another calibrator question

Hi,  I have a quick question regarding monitor calibrators, this is rather basic but I haven't been able to find an answer to this...  I bought  Spyder4PRO and calibrated my laptop monitor.  It's the only computer I own so I use it for printing as well as browsing.

My question is Do I need to keep the calibrator connected to my laptop if I am not printing? If I'm using my laptop for anything other than printing can I just disconnect the calibrator and reconnect it when I want to print?  Would I have to recalibrate the monitor then to print?  Or just reconnect it to the laptop?

Sorry if this question is too basic and the answer is obvious....  I've searched but haven't been able to find an answer so I thought I'd ask here.

thanks!
